Children with Medical Handicaps Program

The Children with Medical Handicaps Program (CMH) is a health care program in the Ohio Department of Health. CMH links families of children with special health care needs to a network of quality providers and helps families obtain payment for the services their children need.


CMH’s mission is to assure, through the development and support of high-quality, coordinated systems, that children with special health care needs and their families obtain comprehensive care and services that are family-centered, community based, and culturally sensitive.

Maternal/Child Health

Bureau of Maternal, Child & Family Health (BMCFH) is an organized effort to eliminate health disparities, improve birth outcomes and improve the health status of women, infants, children, youth and families in Ohio. Using evidenced-based and data driven practices, we support the delivery of direct services, linkages and referrals, population-based supports, education, monitoring and quality oversight, and policy and systems development.

As part of the Maternal/Child Health program at JCGHD, we are starting a Quarterly Newsletter to send out information to mothers in the Jefferson County area.  We plan to provide education, support and a sense of community.  We hope to get feedback and use this as a way to address community needs and answer some questions along the way.  This month we are focusing on nutritional and mental health wellness before, during and after pregnancy.  As warmer weather comes our way, we are also wanting to start some local community gardens and support groups led by moms throughout the county.  If you would like to be a part of either, please contact our Maternal/Child Health nurse at 740-283-8530 ext. 1636 or via email at [email protected]

Reproductive Health and Family Planning Resources

The Reproductive Health and Wellness Program (RHWP) comprehensively addresses issues of reproductive health and wellness, including family planning. This includes a focus on populations in greatest need and identified priorities. An important goal of the RHWP in Ohio is to improve the overall health and well-being of women and men by promoting healthy lifestyles and encouraging the establishment of a reproductive life plan. These planning services can help to:

– Plan a healthy pregnancy

– Screen for diseases or health conditions

– Improve pregnancy outcomes

– Improve the health of mothers and babies

Family planning clinics in Ohio receive funds to provide these services. Persons having low incomes and those with no insurance or insurance that does not cover reproductive health services have priority. Fees for services are based on family size and income, and no one is denied service if they cannot pay. There is no requirement that a person must live in the area in order to receive services.


Funding comes through Federal Title X of the Public Health Service Act, Maternal and Child Health Block Grant, and general revenue funds.


For more information, call Jefferson County General Health District at (740) 283-8530 or contact us online.
