Our mission is to improve Maternal and infant health through advocacy, education and access to vital resources.
About HMHB Georgia: Since 1973, Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Georgia has been the strongest statewide voice for improved access to healthcare and health outcomes for Georgia’s women and babies. We achieve our mission in the following ways:
- Advocating at Georgia’s State Capital for improved preventive and curative health services and programs for women, children and families. Each year the Coalition publishes a Legislative Agenda identifying issues to address during the legislative session. HMHB’s Legislative Advocate, Executive Director, Board and Coalition Members work to educate legislators on these issues and encourage them to support public policy that promotes the health of Georgia’s women, children and families.
- Serving the community through the PowerLine, Georgia’s statewide, toll-free, bi-lingual telephone information and referral line for free and reduced-cost healthcare services.
- Collaborating through forums where legislators, policymakers, healthcare professionals and advocates can share ideas for improving the health of Georgia’s women, children and families. HMHB serves as a catalyst and convening body to strengthen health related services for women, children and families.
Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Georgia is a member of National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies, based in Washington, D.C. Their efforts center on improving the health and safety of mothers, babies and families via education and collaborative partnerships with public and private organizations. Currently, there are 90 state and local HMHB Coalitions across the nation, all independent, yet all working toward achieving aspects of the National Coalition's mission.
