Within a culturally affirming environment and honoring the unique history of African-American women, the Black Infant Health (BIH) Program aims to help women have healthy babies. Participants learn proven strategies to reduce stress and develop life skills. This is accomplished through a group-based approach with complementary case management. Weekly group sessions help women build social support, access their strengths, make positive choices and set health-promoting goals. The goal of the BIH Program is to improve African-American infant and maternal health, as well as decrease health and social inequities for women and infants.
