Systems and Environmental Changes
Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health (MCAH) programs have a unique role in addressing environmental system changes, which help to make healthy choices practical and accessible to all members of a community. Their work with various local and governmental organizations and the vast population they serve allow for many collaborations and partnerships to be formed and expertise to be shared. Focusing on environmental changes addressing nutrition, physical activity, and breastfeeding can lead to sustainable and cost-effective methods of promoting the well-being of the MCAH population.
