Heart of Georgia Healthy Start
Better Health for Babies

What is Healthy Start?
Heart of Georgia Healthy Start is a locally planned and implemented infant mortality reduction project.  We are part of a network of federally funded Healthy Start programs, but our project is unique and was specially designed by members of our community.
 
Heart of Georgia Healthy Start is a partnership of the 10-county South Central Health District and the Heart of Georgia Healthy Start Coalition.

Our Purpose
 Our purpose is to decrease infant mortality and improve the health of all babies in our communities.  We use research-based methods to combat the causes of infant mortality in our area.
