Healthier Generations Project (HGP)

Healthier Generations Logo

Despite major advancements in medicine and technology, far too many babies in Georgia are born too soon and too small, which increases the likelihood of the infant not making it to his or her first birthday.

Among metro area counties, Clayton has one of the highest infant mortality rates. In response, the Clayton County Board of Health (CCBOH) launched it's Healthier Generations project, designed to create A Healthier Clayton in One Generation through strengthening families with the use of education, home visitation, case management and referrals.

What is Healthier Generations Project (HGP)?

Healthier Generations provides services to families that reside in Clayton County, Georgia. The mission is to improve the health and well-being of pregnant and postpartum women, their babies, families and the community by providing supportive services. There are far too many babies born in Georgia born too small and too sick.

Eligibility Requirements

Healthier Generations' target population includes African American women  of childbearing age (14-45); women who are pregnant or recently delivered a baby; children birth to 2 years of age or any woman who has had a low birth weight baby or considered at risk.
