Project Overview

Birmingham Healthy Start (BHS) is one of the original fifteen HRSA funded Healthy Start Programs. Originally a component of the Jefferson County Department of Health (JCDH), BHS became a Division of Birmingham health care, Inc. on June 1, 2009. Since its inception, BHS has been on a journey aimed at reducing infant mortality in the city of Birmingham, and later to eliminate disparities in fourteen BHS designated communities. BHS provides outreach and comprehensive home visitation, health education (childbirth and parenting classes), case management, interconceptional care, depression screening and referral, and other valuable supportive services to perinatal clients. BHS has provided direct services to over 35,000 perinatal clients and their families, and pertinent information, and disseminated pertinent health awareness information to over 54,000 community members.
