Home - MCH Lead Toolkit

The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) is pleased to share its new, interactive MCH Lead Toolkit. This resource was developed to help public health professionals access lead poisoning prevention resources, strategies, tools, and ideas that they can replicate or adapt in their states and communities. The toolkit features:

Easy navigation to meet your needs – you choose how you go through the toolkit and which sections you use
Interactive action center organized by focus areas for systems change (Family Engagement and Partnership, Clinical Settings, and more!)

Case studies from nine state teams that tested out innovative practices and quality improvement methods
Tip sheets and resources
Searchable resource index

This toolkit was designed for anyone who works in local and state health departments, but it will also be of interest and use to state and local decision makers, public health and environmental health professionals and leaders, students, policymakers, and anyone interested in decreasing maternal and child exposure to lead and increasing systems of care to meet the needs of lead-exposed MCH populations.

You can access the toolkit at www.MCHLeadToolkit.org. You may also contact [email protected] for additional questions or information requests.

This toolkit compiles educational, advocacy, and planning resources for public health agencies working to prevent and mitigate maternal and child lead poisoning. Learn More

Do you have a project that you have been trying to launch, but you haven’t had the time? Is there an activity you would implement or resources you would create, if only you had extra staff to help? If so, consider hosting a Title V MCH Internship team during Summer 2020!

The National MCH Workforce Development Center (the “Center”) will support at least seven teams of MCH students to participate in internships in state Title V programs. If your state’s application is selected, a two-person student team will work to successfully complete a meaningful project of your choice. As a state preceptor, you will receive support from Center staff to facilitate the successful initiation and completion of an agreed upon scope of work.
