Significance: Evidence-based home visiting programs, such as those supported through the federal MIECHV program and implemented by the Bureau of Family Health, have been linked to improvements in a variety of indicators of child and family health, including those related to child injury and violence. Louisiana MIECHV does not currently collect data on the specific education activities and facilitators utilized during home visits, however all clients receive some education related to child injury prevention. This ESM measures progress in relation to increasing enrollment in evidence-based home visiting programs, and therefore increasing the reach of families benefiting from injury prevention interventions.
