Technical Assistance Briefs

Decorative image of TAThe MCH Evidence Center provides ongoing technical assistance (TA) to Title V agencies related to the emerging evidence base, strategies, and measures related to many topics interconnected to the 15 National Performance Measures and other critical topics in MCH. One outcome of these TA sessions are Technical Assistance Briefs that are designed to act as a conversation starter in thinking about programs that can be developed to address issues that affect women, infants, children, adolescents, youth, families, and communities. These briefs are not meant to be comprehensive; full analysis of the NPM topic areas are provided in the Evidence Analysis Reports.

The Center makes these customized reports available during TA and on this website to identify evidence-based/informed strategies, promising practices, examples of ESMs from the field and peer-reviewed resources. Please contact us if you would like us to develop a similar report for topics that you are working on.

In addition, please see the full collection of Resource Guides on over 100 MCH-related topics from the MCH Digital Library.
