Maternal & Infant Health
Division of Maternal & Infant Health
The Division of Maternal & Infant Health (DMIH) is home to an array of public health programs, initiatives and interventions aimed at improving the health and well-being of women, infants, families and communities.
To achieve further success in improving the outcomes for Michigan mothers, infants and families, we must make data-informed decisions, deploy strategies to address systemic racism and inequities in the social determinants of health, eliminate disparities facing women, engage extended families, caregivers, and fathers, and further develop and sustain strong collaborative partnerships.
Moms, Babies and Pregnancy - Information on COVID-19
As we are all responding to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it is important that information and resources be shared, during this quickly evolving situation. We will continue to share information and frequent communications to our maternal infant health network. Thank you for the work that you do each and every day to protect and promote the health of our Michigan moms, babies and families. Visit Michigan.gov/Coronavirus for up to date information about COVID-19.
The Michigan Mother Infant Health & Equity Improvement Plan (MIHEIP) builds upon the many successes that have and are improving the lives of mothers, infants and families and delves into the heart of the disparities that exist in our state. The plan outlines the State of Michigan's commitment to improving maternal and infant health.
During the last few years, many successes have improved the lives of mothers, infants and families in Michigan. Maternal infant health stakeholders work on expansive and diverse efforts statewide. The MIHEIP Yearly Highlights are intended to give a brief overview of successes and acknowledge the invaluable commitment of stakeholders.
All Michigan mothers, infants and families have the right to optimal health, together we can achieve the vision of Zero preventable deaths and Zero health disparities.
