The Greater Racine Collaborative for Healthy Birth Outcomes (GRC4HBO)

The Greater Racine Collaborative for Healthy Birth Outcomes (GRC4HBO)

 

 

The Greater Racine Collaborative for Healthy Birth Outcomes (GRC4HBO), an initiative of the Racine Kenosha Community Action Agency (RKCAA), formed in 2007 as a response to a public health crisis in Racine, Wis. In 2007, African American babies were three times as likely to not live to see their first birthday. For every 1,000 live births, 23 African American babies didn’t make it to the age of one.

The mission of the collaborative is to reduce African American infant mortality and improve the health and well being of African American women, children and families in the Greater Racine community.

The work of the collaborative is funded by The Wisconsin Partnership Program at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Covering Kids and Families, and the Medical College of Wisconsin.

 

The strategies of the collaborative include focus on:

    • Improving adolescent health

    • Improving healthcare access

    • Improving breastfeeding support

    • Improving community awareness of support services
