What We Do

The Bureau of Family Health promotes the health of Iowa families by providing resources for healthcare services through public and private collaborative efforts. We advocate for services that are family-centered, community-based, and culturally sensitive. Through these efforts, community entities are empowered to develop local healthcare systems that meet present and future health needs.
