What We Do

  • Advocacy
    NHSA is firmly committed to serving as a leading voice in support of government policies and programs that serve disadvantaged pregnant women, babies and families.
  • Infant Mortality Awareness Campaign
    Infant Mortality is a serious issue that affects our nation’s health. The National Healthy Start Association (NHSA) has developed a campaign, “Celebrate Day 366…Every Baby Deserves a Chance,” to celebrate babies living beyond the first year of life.
  • Partnership to Eliminate Disparities
    In 2008, CityMatCH, AMCHP, and NHSA, with funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation*, created the Partnership to Eliminate Disparities in Infant Mortality, with an aim to decrease racial disparities in infant mortality in U.S. urban areas. The Infant Mortality and Racism ALC is the first project of the Partnership.
  • Where Dads Matter
    Healthy Start projects over the years have consistently expressed a need to make Healthy Start sites more father-inclusive, by involving dads in program activities and in the lives of their children, and the promotion of responsible fatherhood with or without marriage.
  • Show Your Love Campaign
    Show Your Love is a campaign developed by the CDC National Preconception Health Consumer Workgroup. The campaign is expected to launch Valentine’s Week, February 2013 and is designed to improve the health of women and babies by promoting preconception health (PCH) and health care.
  • Spring Conference
    The 18th Annual Spring Conference themed, Championing Equity in Our Communities...25 Years and Counting, will be held April 1-5, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.
