Community Action Network

Healthy Start developed the Community Action Network to:

  • Guide the design and actions of Healthy Start;
  • Increase community awareness of infant death issues;
  • Suggest interventions to help our community and those we serve; and
  • Promote healthy lifestyle choices and positive birth outcomes in South Phoenix.

The Community Action Network is composed of clients, neighborhood residents, healthcare providers, social service and public health agencies, faith-based representatives and members of our local business community.

South Phoenix Healthy Start is a federally funded, community-based infant mortality reduction program. Our mission is to increase the number of infants that live and remain healthy past one year of age.
