San Bernardino Approves New Funding for County’s Black Infant Health Program

San Bernardino, CA – During the November 19, 2019 meeting of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors the board approved additional funding—by unanimous consent—of $940,212 in support of the county’s Black Infant Health Program (BIH) through June 30, 2020. Statewide BIH works to help Black women have healthy babies by creating a culturally affirming environment intended to honor the unique history of African American women. The program enhances life skills, while helping to build social support systems and learning strategies for reducing stress, Program participants come together in weekly group sessions and are further supported by one-to-one case management,

Experts believe that social, economic and racial stresses play an important role in poor birth outcomes for Black babies and often leads to them being born too early and too small.
