Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB)

As the lead federal agency responsible for improving the health of children in the US, MCHB established the National Center for Family / Professional Partnerships in 2005 to implement the core outcome that "Families will partner in decision-making at all levels and will be satisfied with the services they receive."  This cooperative agreement was awarded to Family Voices, Inc. in 2005 and again in 2009.

The NCFPP works closely with MCHB to carry out activities to meet this goal, including assisting F2F HICs, contributing to the evidence base around family/professional partnerships, and partnering with national centers and others.  More information about this work is described throughout this website.
