What We're Up Against

Pregnant women and babies in Camden City face more health risks than other women and babies in the state. This is what we're up against:

• Twice as many babies in Camden die before their first birthday

• Three times as many Camden women do not receive prenatal care

• Women in Camden are 1.5 times more likely to have a low birth weight baby

Only by working together can we improve these numbers. Camden Healthy Start leads community-focused efforts to promote the health and happiness of those most at risk. Through outreach, education and support, Camden Healthy Start works to create a healthier Camden. Be part of the solution.
