Abstract

Iowa’s Title V MCH program guides priorities and provides foundational support for community based agencies and state level public health programs. The Iowa Legislature designates the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) as the administrator for Title V and Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health (MCAH) services through the Bureau of Family Health (BFH). The legislature directs IDPH to contract with Child Health Specialty Clinics (CHSC) within the University of Iowa Stead Family Department of Pediatrics, Division of Child and Community Health (DCCH) for the administration of the Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) program. The State of Iowa is primarily rural, with approximately 3.1 million people according to United States Census Bureau. In 2018, there were around 595,000 women of reproductive age (15-44 years) and just over 37,500 births. Of the 733,000 children under 18 years of age, about 128,000 were CYSHCN. Of Iowa’s population, 18% is covered by Medicaid and/or Hawki. In 2018, 90.2% identified as white, the Hispanic population increased from 2.8% in 2000 to 6.1% in 2018, which is consistent with data showing that Iowa is becoming more diverse. Live births to Hispanic women made up 10.3% of all births in 2018.
