Cabarrus Health Alliance (CHA) is able to work with moms to provide the necessary support and care to have a safe and health pregnancy. When all the needs of the mother are addressed during pregnancy, children are born healthy and into a safe environment thereby contributing to a decrease in infant mortality rates.
Children living in safe and healthy homes are more likely to reach their educational goals and are less likely to engage in harmful health behaviors. Children exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) on the other hand are less likely to reach their full potential. This is why Cabarrus Health Alliance (CHA) is working together with community partners to prevent ACEs and ensure that children live in safe and healthy homes.
Having access to a variety of options for family planning and contraceptives will allow women to decide if and when it is the right time to have a baby.

The risks of contracting Sexually Transmitted Diseases or Infections (STDs or STIs), and unintended pregnancies are greatly lowered when adolescents engage in safe sexual practices. At Cabarrus Health Alliance (CHA), our programs and services provide up to date information about reproductive health so that all adolescents who choose to engage in sexual practices do so safely.
