The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Advisory Task Force was created by the Minnesota Legislature in 1982 to advise the Commissioner of Health on the health care services/needs of maternal and child health populations in Minnesota, on the use of funds for maternal and child health and children with special health needs administered through MDH, and the priorities and goals for maternal and child health activities.
Reinstated (1995 Minn. Laws Chap. 246 Sec. 2).
The Maternal and Child Health Advisory Task Force was reviewed by the Legislative Commission on Planning and Fiscal Policy (LCPFP) in 2013 as part of their biennial duty required by Minn. Stat. 3.885 Subd. 11. The LCPFP's 2013 Recommendations called for keeping the task force.
Legislation passed in 2015 gave the task force clearance to "conduct a review of current methods of data collection on stillbirths, prenatal protocols to prevent stillbirths, available supports for families who have experienced a stillbirth, and any other information related to stillbirths that the task force deems appropriate" (2015 Minn. Laws Chap. 42 Sec. 4)
The Maternal and Child Health Advisory Task Force does not expire.
