Mission Statement

The Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health (MCAH) Bureau of the Solano County Health and Social Services Department will assess, develop, preserve, and improve access and services for women, infants, children adolescents, and families in our communities. The Bureau promotes wellness and prevents disease, injury, and violence through advocacy, outreach, resource development, education, and collaboration with Department and community partners. The Bureau embraces the public health principles of assessments, assurance, and policy development.

2. Assure quality, comprehensive and coordinated reproductive care is accessible to all women of childbearing age.
3. Reduce Infant Morbidity and Mortality.
4. Reduce intentional and unintentional teen pregnancy.
5. All children in Solano County will have access to preventive health care services.
6. Reduce morbidity and mortality from pediatric injuries.
7. Families will live in violence free home environments.
