The Bureau of Family Health (BFH) works with communities and statewide partners to identify gaps in Louisiana’s maternal and child health policies. Through cooperative studies and reports, the BFH policy team pinpoints and publicizes important opportunities to improve family health across the state.
BFH supports key Boards, Commissions, and Councils that focus on family health in Louisiana. Each of these groups works to assess emerging health concerns, identify opportunities to improve, and recommend strategies to make Louisiana a healthier place to live, learn, grow, and work.
Who are our partners?
