The Healthy Babies Zone Wilkinsburg (HBZ) project was modeled after the Best Babies Zone (BBZ) framework (pictured below) to establish a community structure that ensures that babies are born into a community that will enable them to thrive and reach their full potential. The BBZ initiative was created to address perinatal health outcomes by focusing efforts on the social and economic determinants of health and the promotion of health equity and their impact on health outcomes. The core partners of HBZ are Healthy Start Inc., Pittsburgh, Allegheny County Health Department, Maternal and Child Health Division, The University of Pittsburgh Centers for Health Equity, Circles Greater Pittsburgh, Trying Together, Women for a Healthy Environment and Hosanna House. We are guided by our Community Champion, Ms. Toni Watkins.
