The R40 MCH Research Program supports applied research relating to maternal and child health services, including services for children with special health care needs. Research should demonstrate a substantial contribution to advancement of the current knowledge pool, and when used in States and communities should result in health and health services improvements. Findings from the research supported by the MCH Research Program are expected to strengthen and expand Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation. This includes research that drives policy and service delivery of preventive and early intervention services for application in health care delivery programs or develops new knowledge on the impact of insurance coverage on health promotion. Research proposals should address critical MCH questions such as public health systems and infrastructure, health disparities, quality of care, and promoting the health of MCH populations.
