Improving Oklahomans' Lives Through Research, Planning & Action

Family Health Coalition

The health of a community can be determined, in some measure, by the health of its babies. The United States ranks well below other industrialized and some developing countries in the rate of babies who die before their first birthday. Oklahoma ranks poorly in most indicators of maternal and infant health.

In 1987, the Community Service Council formed the Family Health Coalition (originally named the Tulsa Area Coalition on Perinatal Care) to address access to prenatal care and poor birth outcomes. The Family Health Coalition is committed to working together through broad-based community representation to optimize the health and well-being of uninsured, underinsured and Medicaid enrolled women of childbearing age, infants and families by establishing a system of universal and comprehensive quality health education, prevention, services and support.
