Interested in learning about our 2024 Federal Policy Agenda? Download it from our website! 

Our 2024 Federal Policy Agenda outlines where AMCHP intends to focus our advocacy work this year in support of federal programs and policies across Congress and the Executive Branch that improve the health of women, children, and their families. 

We also reinforce AMCHP’s acknowledgment of racism as a public health crisis that directly impacts the health outcomes of the communities we serve and reiterate our commitment to evaluating policies through the lens of dismantling racism and pursuing health equity and racial equity 

In 2024, AMCHP will play a leadership role to advance policies that:  

  1. Robustly fund maternal and child health (MCH) programs and initiatives, including the Health Resources & Services Administration’s (HRSA’s) Title V MCH Services Block Grant at $1 billion and additional critical federal MCH programs such as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Safe Motherhood Portfolio and HRSA’s Healthy Start Program. 
  2. Prevent and respond to MCH concerns, with an emphasis on supporting communities that are disparately impacted. This includes addressing racial and ethnic disparities in maternal and infant mortality and morbidity and responding to emerging MCH issues. 
  3. Support the needs of AMCHP’s membership at large by serving as our members’ eyes, ears, and voice in Washington, DC, and uplifting stories to ensure their experiences and needs are reflected in federal policy conversations.

AMCHP 2024 Highlight: Policy Leaders’ Reflections on Black Maternal Health Week

AMCHP’s 2024 Annual Conference in Oakland, California, coincided with Black Maternal Health Week. To highlight the amazing work being done in this space, we featured influential Black maternal health policy leaders in videos played during our conference plenary session. The first video features Congresswoman Lauren Underwood (D-IL-14), Co-Chair of the Black Maternal Health Caucus and Sponsor of the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act, historic legislation to save moms’ lives and address every driver of maternal mortality, morbidity, and disparities in the United States.  

The second video features Okunsola M. Amadou, Founder and CEO of Jamaa Birth Village and the AMCHP 2024 John MacQueen Lecture Award recipient; Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA-12), a Black maternal health champion representing California’s 12th congressional district, which is based in Oakland; and Breana Lipscomb, Senior Adviser of Maternal Health & Rights at the Center for Reproductive Rights.  

Each advocate for Black maternal health was invited to share their reflections on the significance of Black Maternal Health Week and their efforts to drive policy improvements in this critical area. We encourage you to take a few moments to hear their insights on their inspiration for advocating in this field, the policy avenues they envision for enhancing Black maternal health, and how collaborative efforts within the maternal and child health community can facilitate meaningful policy reform.

Webinar: Strengthening Early Childhood Systems – The Roles of Title V, ECCS, and MIECHV   

The goals of the Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant, the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) Health Integration Prenatal-to-Three program, and the Maternal Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program are closely aligned: all are focused on supporting the health and wellbeing of parents and young children, and on developing a coordinated and equitable system of care, especially for families that have been systematically excluded.

New AMCHP Issue Brief: Opportunities to Leverage Opioid Settlement Funding for State Maternal and Child Health Priorities 

Graphic promoting new AMCHP issue brief: Opportunities to Leverage Opioid Settlement Funding for State Maternal and Child Health Priorities.

AMCHP’s new issue brief, Opportunities to Leverage Opioid Settlement Funding for State Maternal and Child Health Priorities, provides an overview of the opioid settlements, which are funds paid to states by the opioid industry to compensate for the costs associated with the opioid epidemic. The brief features case studies from four state public health departments that demonstrate how settlement funds can be leveraged to support families impacted by substance use.  

Billions of dollars are flowing to states from the settlements. The issue brief provides maternal and child health (MCH) professionals with recommendations to influence state decision-making to ensure that settlement funding benefits MCH priorities. As subject matter experts in this area, state MCH programs can be influential advocates for comprehensive, evidence-based programs, policies, and strategies that support families affected by perinatal substance use disorder.

AMCHP, Family Voices, and the Catalyst Center Resources on the Medicaid Redetermination Process 

Graphic promoting new AMCHP resource: Fact sheets for families and MCH Professionals.

AMCHP, Family Voices, and the Catalyst Center at the Boston University School of Social Work) have developed new fact sheet resources for families and maternal and child health (MCH) professionals on the Medicaid redetermination process.   

Tailored to each audience, these fact sheets explain the options for children and adults determined to be ineligible for Medicaid, including the processes for reinstatement, appeal, reapplication, and alternative coverage sources such as CHIP and the Marketplace. Because Medicaid renewal is an annual process for children, these resources are useful for providing state MCH staff and advocates with a baseline knowledge of the redetermination process. 

The family resources are also available in multiple languages including Spanish, Mandarin, and Arabic.

Started by Clifford W. Beers, the founder of Mental Health America, this annual one-week awareness campaign was originally intended to celebrate recovery from mental illness and to educate the general public on mental health conditions. Launched in 1949 as a full month, Mental Health Awareness Month now seeks to increase awareness of the state of mental health in the United States.

AMCHP Applauds the Biden-Harris Administration’s Release of the Maternal Mental Health Task Force National Strategy to Improve Maternal Mental Health Care

On the heels of Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced the release of a national strategy to address maternal mental health and substance use issues. During the perinatal period, an estimated one in five individuals are impacted by mental health conditions and substance use disorders, which are the leading causes of pregnancy-related deaths in the U.S., accounting for more than 22% of those deaths. 

The National Strategy to Improve Maternal Mental Health Care is accompanied by a Report to Congress as a part of broader federal efforts to address women’s overall health, and maternal health in particular, across the nation, consistent with the White House Blueprint for Addressing the Maternal Health Crisis and the White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research.

New Report from the Vanderbilt Cultural Contexts of Health and Wellbeing Initiative Explores Centering Children in Policymaking 

Cover of Vanderbilt Report - Rethinking Childhoods: The cultural contexts shaping children's health and wellbeing.

Childhood is more than biology. Our bodies may grow in similar ways, but a person’s experience of childhood is defined and shaped by culture. In the United States, policies that are designed to address children’s health and well-being often miss this.  

A report from the Vanderbilt Cultural Contexts of Health and Wellbeing Initiative puts cultural assumptions and biases around childhood into perspective by exploring how childhoods are understood globally.  

Learn how decision-makers in El Salvador, Guatemala, Scotland, and New Zealand are working to center children’s worldviews and experiences in policymaking and community building. Discover how inviting children’s engagement can lead to better policies and better health for all kids in the United States.

New Article by CDC Scientists: Syphilis Treatment Among People Who are Pregnant in Six U.S. States – SET NET, 2018-2021 

On Wednesday, April 17, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientists published an article in Obstetrics & Gynecology entitled “Syphilis Treatment Among People Who are Pregnant in Six U.S. States – SET-NET, 2018-2021.” 

Syphilis during pregnancy has dramatically increased in recent years. When left untreated, syphilis can lead to serious illness for pregnant people and their babies. This study looks at syphilis treatment patterns during pregnancy in six states from 2018-2021: 

  • In this study, fewer than two-thirds of people with syphilis during pregnancy were adequately treated.   
  • People without timely prenatal care (at least one visit more than 30 days before the end of pregnancy) or no prenatal care were less likely to be adequately treated. However, nearly one-third of those with timely prenatal care were still inadequately or not treated.   
  • People with complicated lived experiences, such as reported substance use or being unhoused, were twice as likely to receive inadequate or no treatment. 

We can do more about syphilis. 

We need earlier testing during pregnancy and a faster turnaround of testing and treatment. This can help ensure adequate treatment is initiated more than 30 days before delivery. Any healthcare encounter during pregnancy is prenatal care and is an opportunity for syphilis screening and prompt treatment. In addition to improving access to prenatal care, approaches to improve syphilis care in settings outside of traditional prenatal care settings, including emergency rooms, substance use treatment facilities, jails/prisons, and shelters serving unhoused individuals, are needed.  

New Heat and Health Assessment Tool from CDC and NOAA  

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released the nation’s first health-based heat alert system and heat guidance for clinicians. 

The new initiative has three resources, which combined enable proactive steps people can take to protect themselves:  

  • The HeatRisk Forecast Tool, developed by CDC and NOAA, provides a seven-day national-scale heat forecast that tells you when temperatures reach levels that could harm health. 
  • CDC’s HeatRisk Dashboard serves as a portal into all our new heat resources for the nation and includes the HeatRisk Forecast Tool, details on local air quality, and actions to stay safe on hot days or days with poor air quality. 
  • CDC clinical guidance that we expect will enable clinicians and their patients to create personalized plans that will help ensure we can continue to safely enjoy warmer months. Even though heat can impact anyone’s physical and mental health, many groups may be particularly sensitive to heat and our guidance has focused initially on children with asthma, pregnant women, and people with cardiovascular disease.
