All children deserve a healthy start, but many in Onondaga County experience developmental challenges as early as birth from factors such as low birth weight, late or no prenatal care, and teenage and/or unmarried parents. Poor birth outcomes are especially prevalent among economically disadvantaged families and families of color. The key to combatting these outcomes is ensuring the reproductive well- being of women and their partners through education, advocacy, and equitable access to high-quality reproductive healthcare.

The ECA understands that the health of our county’s children is inextricably linked to the health of their mothers. We are committed to advancing strategies that promote reproductive well-being and empower women to make informed choices about their bodies, their sexual health, and their future children.
