The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is expanding home visiting in NYC and streamlining how providers, organizations and community residents can access quality home visiting services. The goal is to improve maternal and child health and well-being outcomes by matching families' assessed risks to evidence-based (EB) or evidence-generating (EG) home visiting (HV) models that are most appropriate for them based on their needs, and to connect them to other resources as needed. Racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic inequities create disparate outcomes in the neighborhoods served by existing Agency sponsored locally designed home visiting programs as compared with the rest of the city, and providing services beginning in the prenatal through postpartum period is vital to addressing these outcomes.

Welcome to the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
With an annual budget of $1.6 billion and more than 6,000 employees throughout the five boroughs, we're one of the largest public health agencies in the world. We are also one of the nation's oldest public health agencies, with more than 200 years of leadership in the field.
Every day, we protect and promote the health of 8 million New Yorkers. Our work is broad-ranging. You see us in the inspection grades of dining establishments, the licenses dogs wear, the low- to no-cost health clinics in your neighborhood and the birth certificates for our youngest New Yorkers.
We are also behind the scenes with our disease detectives, investigating suspicious clusters of illness. Our epidemiologists study the patterns, causes and effects of health and disease conditions in New York City neighborhoods. These studies shape policy decisions and the City's health agenda.
The challenges we face are many. They range from obesity, diabetes and heart disease to HIV/AIDS, tobacco addiction, substance use and the threat of bioterrorism. We are also working to address enduring gaps in health between white New Yorkers and c...ommunities of color. Structural racism is at the root of these health inequities, which is why we have made racial justice a priority.
The New York City Health Department is tackling these issues with innovative policies and programs, and getting exceptional results.
