Healthy Babies Healthy Children (HBHC) Program

Healthy Babies Healthy Children (HBHC) is a program designed to help children in Ontario have a healthy start in life and provide them with opportunities to reach their potential. The program is funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services  (MCSS) and delivered through Ontario’s public health units in partnership with hospitals and other community partners. 

MCSS introduced enhancements to strengthen the HBHC program in 2012. PHO was commissioned to evaluate the implementation of the enhanced HBHC program over the first six months of implementation across Ontario.
