Equity, Health and Well-Being

Cardea partnered with the YWCA Healthy Birth Outcomes (HBO) program in King County, Washington, a program designed to advance health equity by working with pregnant and parenting women to improve birth outcomes. Cardea worked with HBO to develop an evaluation plan to develop HBO’s capacity to document program successes in alignment with national metrics for home visiting programs, and to identify areas for improvement.
