It is the goal of the Maternal & Child Health programme to improve the well being and health while minimizing morbidity and mortality among the maternal clients (i.e. women of child-bearing age), infants and children in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.  This is accomplished by delivering quality, affordable healthcare by competent, compassionate healthcare providers through a dynamic network of public health services available through hospital wards (eg. maternity, labour, gynae, female medical / surgical wards), specialist care (i.e. ICU, NICU, SCBU, Neurodevelopment) and community health clinics.
