WHAT WE DO
Technical Assistance & Business Development
NBEC’s work applies sound public health practices including assessment, program planning, implementation, quality improvement and evaluation that are solidly grounded in the principles of racial and health equity and reproductive justice. These principles reflect Life Course Theory in that it recognizes that one’s health is impacted by experiences and events across the life span and that these experiences can adversely or positively impact one’s health and outcomes over generations.
Insights From Our Team
Our approach relies on the strengths of community systems of care to provide the necessary support to birthing people while also addressing root causes of poor maternal health outcomes.
Programming Design Phases:
The Technical Assistance Team provides quality assurance on behalf of NBEC. We achieve this by centering equity in the program and project design including how we engage stakeholders and internal teams. Our approach to centering equity involves acknowledging: bias, cultural bias, cultural hegemony, inequity, and exclusion and building skills to discuss this reality in our work and in how we work. Our team’s deliverables can range from final reports capturing a project’s findings to strategic planning recommendations for organizations seeking to embed equity in their work.
