Program Summary: CAMBA’s iCARE Program stands for “Initiating
Change Around Reproductive Education” and is designed to
help all women lead healthy lifestyles, thus reducing instances
of unplanned pregnancies, pre-term and low-weight births, and
low infant mortality rates. We host educational workshops on
key topics related to women’s health, and help clients obtain
health insurance, family planning services, quality health care,
and other social services depending on their current needs,
available resources, and short and long-term goals for the future
— whether that includes having children or not. We provide brief
case management and refer clients to evidence based programs.
CAMBA’s iCARE Program also works with public health agencies,
service providers, and policy makers across Brooklyn to address
overall racial, ethnic and economic disparities in women’s health
care. In doing so, we aim to improve quality of care in high
need and high poverty neighborhoods, making it easier for all
women to access the services they need to lead healthy lives.
