“Striving for birth equity through unity and empowerment”

In February 2021, the Kern County Public Health Department and First 5 Kern, formed the Black Infant and Maternal Health Initiative (BIMHI). The goal of BIMHI is to address the health gaps seen in the County’s Black mothers, babies, and children. BIMHI is made up of local government organizations, community-based groups, non-profits, and community members. Over the course of 2021 and 2022, BIMHI made a 3-year plan to learn, inform, and make an impact on the health of Kern County’s Black mothers and children.
