This 43-minute presentation demonstrates how MCH systems are linked in the U.S. Dr. Margolis uses the WHO health system framework as a comparison tool to examine the MCH system. This framework includes Service Delivery, Health Workforce, Information, Medical Products, Financing, and Leadership/Governance. Four important legislative milestones in MCH history are also discussed: 1) the U.S. Congress established the Children’s Bureau in 1912, 2) passage of Titles IV and V, 3) creation and evolution of Medicaid (Title XIX of the Social Security Act), and 4) the passage of IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act). The presentation also touches on the framework of the MCH Pyramid of Health Services, including infrastructure-building services, population-based services, enabling services, and direct health care services.
