To improve the health and well-being of pregnant women, infants, and young children by empowering women and families to make healthier choices for themselves and their babies, before, during and after pregnancy. (Adopted January 2013)
The Southern Oregon Perinatal Task Force meets in Josephine and Douglas Counties and provides a networking opportunity for all involved in Perinatal Health to learn about Task Force Projects and how they might benefit the community. Visit our Events Calendar for upcoming events.
Preconception Health Project
The purpose of the Preconception Health Project is to decrease unintended pregnancies, and to improve the health of women of childbearing age, thus improving pregnancy outcomes. Working through the Southern Oregon Perinatal Task Force, interventions are aimed at both the health systems and community levels. The Task Force is overseeing implementation of clinical preconception health preventive services, and conducting a community-wide Preconception Health Campaign.
