This program of the Allegheny County Health Department, is designed to identify a broad range of community-driven strategies and interventions that reduce infant mortality and the incidences of low weight births. It focuses on six areas in Allegheny County with historically high rates of infant mortality: North Side, Center City, East End, Wilkensburg, South Side and the Western Communities. Healthy Start uses community resources to increase access to services (i.e. childcare) to help alleviate typical barriers to care, increase availability of WIC and nutrition counseling services, providing transportation to prenatal visits and much more.
