Through funding provided by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the Family Voices National Center for Family Professional Partnerships (NCFPP) is supporting the expansion of opportunities for families of children with special health needs (CSHCN) in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and other territories affected by the Zika virus, to be better informed and able to participate in their child’s health care. This project provides peer support, training, resources, and technical assistance to aid the development of family-led organizations to help families gain valuable information and play a critical role in their child and families’ health care.
