Description: This study is designed to assess the effectiveness of the Maternal Infant Health Program (MIHP). MIHP is Michigan’s largest evidence-based home visiting program for Medicaid-eligible pregnant people and infants. The purpose of MIHP is to promote healthy pregnancies, positive birth outcomes, and healthy infant growth and development, with the long-term goal of reducing maternal and infant mortality and morbidity. This study uses a randomized-encouragement design to more clearly identify the causal impact of MIHP on key health outcomes.
