Offering the keen insight and expertise of a new author team and new contributors, the Fourth Edition of Kotch's Maternal and Child Health: Problems, Programs, and Policy in Public Health continues to offer a comprehensive, trusted introduction to the field of maternal and child health (MCH), while addressing the traditional MCH topics in a modern context that includes race/ethnicity, an expanded family focus, and a broadened approach that will appeal to health professionals both in and outside of public health practice.
Organized according to fundamental principles of MCH, the book covers traditional MCH topics such as family planning and maternal and infant health as well as skills that are applicable across Public Heath disciplines such as planning, research, monitoring, and advocacy.

- Broadened perspective to include professionals outside of public health (e.g. social work, nursing)
- New and updated graphs, figures, and tables to clarify concepts
