Maternal and Child Health Advisory Task Force

Maternal and Child Health Advisory Task Force

The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Advisory Task Force was created by the Minnesota Legislature in 1982, and reestablished in 2012, to advise the Commissioner of Health on the health care services/needs of maternal and child health populations in Minnesota, on the use of funds for maternal and child health and children with special health needs administered through MDH, and the priorities and goals for maternal and child health activities. The work of the Task Force is governed by a set of operating procedures approved by the membership.
