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.
