Rural Infant Health Program
Birth - 3
Maternal Child Health
The St. Croix Tribal Health Department is working in partnership with eight Tribes through The Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council to improve the health and well-being of Native American children, families, and communities. Our goal is to increase the chances for infant survival and promote infant, women's, and family health through:
Depressions Screening and Referral
Continued Services for Women between Pregnancies
Staff also provides services through the Wisconsin State Rural Infant Health Project that serves prenatal/postpartum women and their infants, including children with special health care needs.
Project activities teach families about health and safety and help them have healthier pregnancies. The project staff offers support for healthy living by encouraging families to become smoke-free households, to breastfeed, to get their children vaccines and to follow-up with a physician's care.
We are dedicated to reducing Native American infant disease and death rates, and eliminating differences in perinatal health in Wisconsin.
