The Engagement In Action (EnAct!) Framework aims to promote positive health equity for all children and families
and sets forth a pathway to support national, state and local efforts to establish a family and community engaged, whole
child and family well-being focused, integrated early childhood health system.
The EnAct! framework builds on decades of progress and innovation both in health care and among other early childhood systems partners to foster integrated approaches to preventive and developmental services. The CAHMI partnered to create the EnAct! framework with the 2017-2023 Mississippi Thrive! Child Health and Development Project initiative, which was supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration through a cooperative agreement. Get a summary of key accomplishments by the MST Initiative and a two-page overview of the EnAct! framework.
More detailed information is provided below about the Cycle of Engagement Well Visit Planner approach and tools, which power elements of the EnAct! framework approach by providing interoperable tools that
engage families, providers and community partners to ensure comprehensive whole child and family assessments are conducted and the unique needs and priorities of each child and family are met.
