Title V Program

Title V 2016-2020 Needs and Assessment

The Title V Program in Oklahoma is administered by two state agencies. 

  • Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) administers programs for pregnant women, mothers, infants, children and their families through the Maternal and Child Health Service (MCH). 
  • Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS) administers the Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Program through the Health Related and Medical Services of the Family Support Services Division. 

The goals of the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) and the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS) are to provide a document with quality data specific to Oklahoma’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) population groups that sets a foundation for addressing and evaluating progress on identified health priorities; includes input from families and health experts as key processes within the needs assessment process; and, is readily available for use by others who make decisions about and/or develop, provide, and evaluate services to the Oklahoma’s MCH population groups.

MCH and the Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Program will use the needs assessment to guide Title V activities for the years 2016-2020. A five-year plan that addresses national and state priorities and sets targets for improvement will be developed using this information. In interim years, changes in Oklahoma’s MCH population groups’ strengths and needs will be assessed and monitored and may lead to changes in the identified state priorities, state performance measures, and/or targets set for national and state performance measures.
