The Alliance for Innovation on Maternal and Child Health: Cooperative Agreement Expanding Access to Care for the Maternal and Child Health Population (AIM) is a collaborative program of national professional membership organizations and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB).
In August 2014, the OPA funded four competitive cooperative agreements to create the ACA Collaborative. The three primary grantees are Altarum, Guttmacher Institute, and the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association.
Altarum supported the Office of Minority Health (OMH) on the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA), a national movement intended to mobilize a nationwide, comprehensive, community-driven, and sustained approach to combating health disparities.
In 2012, 40 state WIC programs, including the District of Columbia, participated in the Food and Nutrition Services-funded 2013 WIC Vendor Management Study conducted by Altarum to examine violations of program rules by participating vendors.
The goals of this project are to expand the YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program to reach more African-American/ Black and Hispanic/Latino populations, implement healthy eating and physical activity standards in early childhood and afterschool programs serving these populations, and achieve jurisdiction-wide health impact through implementation of jurisdiction-wide changes.
Altarum led the first research and demonstration project of Decent Care Values, a unique model that constructs health care based on affected people voicing what they need and want while living with disease and illness.
Altarum's Center for Food and Nutrition publishes a quarterly online newsletter highlighting its strategic initiatives, project work and partnerships to strengthen food assistance and nutrition programs at the national, state and local levels.
Altarum's Center for Food and Nutrition has conducted WIC Participant-Centered Services assessments in over 30 states in multiple USDA Regions.
Altarum's Center for Food Assistance and Nutrition has led multiple studies related to the revised WIC food packages.
Altarum's Center for Food and Nutrition completed an evaluation of small stores’ ability to provide healthy food options under the revised Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Food Packages, as part of its internal research and demonstration agenda called the Childhood Obesity Prevention Project.
Altarum has been involved in several projects to assess and promote nutrition education programs targeting low-income families, including those eligible for the Special Supplemental Program for WIC.
Altarum gathered extensive qualitative data to produce a call to action on women's mental health for policymakers, researchers, and health care providers.
Evaluation of SAMHSA’s Community Mental Health Services and Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant Programs
Altarum conducted the first-ever national, independent evaluations of two major SAMHSA block grant programs: the Community Mental Health Services Block Grant and the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant.
As a subcontractor to Rife Communications, Altarum’s subsidiary Palladian Partners provided HHS’s Office on Women’s Health with strategic and tactical recommendations for womenshealth.gov.
