The UIC Center of Excellence in Maternal and Child Health (CoE-MCH) builds and strengthens the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) workforce by:

- Advancing MCH science, research, practice, and policy.
The Center emphasizes multi-level approaches to understanding and addressing the complex factors that affect the health and well-being of women, children, and families. An essential ingredient is the partnerships we have with public and private sector agencies serving the MCH population and the communities in which MCH problems are prevalent. The Center is committed to scientific rigor, evidence-based public health practice, and the principles of participatory and collaborative research and practice.
