Home / Public Health District IV (Central District Health) WIC CIAO Project


Central District Health’s (CDH) project aims to create a new WIC Outreach Coordinator and integrate WIC outreach and appointments in their Maternal Child Health Service’s mobile clinics, which addresses social determinants of health to refugee, immigrant, and migrant (RIM) residents.

This combined service-delivery model will prepare staff to increase promotion to and engagement of WIC RIM individuals in a more effective, synergistic manner.

Utilizing a WIC Outreach Coordinator has not been done before by CDH across the Ada, Boise, Elmore, and Valley counties. With a mixture of rural and urban counties, this project will comprehensively reach an important priority population. The project will rely heavily on input from community partners.

After implementing this project, CDH is excited to share their model and resources with other local counties in Idaho and at national forums such as annual WIC meetings.
