MCH Life Course Toolbox

The MCH Life Course Toolbox is an online resource for those in the MCH field to share their ideas and find new strategies to integrate the Life Course Perspective into their work.

The Life Course Perspective offers a new way of looking at health, not as disconnected stages unrelated to each other, but as an integrated continuum. This perspective suggests that the many facets of life contribute to health outcomes across the course of one’s life. It builds on recent public health and social science literature which highlight the influence of each stage of life on the next and shows how social, economic, and physical environments interact to have a profound impact on individual and community health.

*Update: The Life Course Game is now available for download on our website.
