About Maternal, Infant, and Child Health

Improving the well-being of mothers, infants, and children is an important public health goal for the United States. Understanding the many factors that affect these groups—both negatively and positively—is key to improving the health of all Americans. Their well-being determines the health of the next generation and can help predict future public health challenges for families, communities, and the health care system. In addition, healthy birth outcomes and early identification and treatment of health conditions among infants can prevent death or disability and enable children to reach their full potential.

About Healthy People 2020 Leading Health Indicators
The Leading Health Indicators (LHIs) represent a smaller set of Healthy People 2020 objectives selected to communicate high-priority health issues and actions to help address them. LHIs are used to assess the health of the Nation, facilitate collaboration across sectors, and motivate action to improve the health of the U.S. population.
