The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) has embarked on a “Title V Transformation,” including major changes to the National Performance Measures (NPMs) to which states are held accountable.
Under the new Transformation, State Title V programs are required to choose eight of fifteen NPMs, including at least one related to adolescent health. States are also required to identify and implement evidence-based/informed strategies to address their selected NPMs.
MCHB has funded several Resource Centers to help states achieve NPMs. The table below shows the NPMs related to adolescent health and their respective Resource Centers, including the Adolescent and Young Adult Health National Resource Center, which focuses on NPM #10. In addition, the “Strengthen the Evidence Base Center” is funded by MCHB to assist states in identifying evidence-based/informed strategies.
More information about the Title V Transformation and National Performance Measures is available here.
