The MCH Navigator is a learning portal that links individuals to existing open-access training, organized in areas consistent with nationally endorsed public health and Maternal and Child Health (MCH) leadership competencies. Online training resources – like archived webcasts and webinars, instructional modules and self-guided short courses – have undergone academic review and have been handpicked for, and vetted by, MCH audiences.
