Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was determined to find help in reducing the city’s infant mortality disparity gap among African-Americans and Hispanics. That’s when the city chose to implement Nurse-Family Partnership.
Nurse-Family Partnership Nurse Home Visitors work with low-income women who are pregnant with their first child, helping these vulnerable young clients achieve healthier pregnancies and births, stronger child development, and a path toward economic self-sufficiency. Nurse-Family Partnership is a rare community health program that has been documented to achieve lasting and significant effects through multiple, well-designed randomized, controlled trials. More than 37 years of research proves that it works.
