Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP)

The Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP), is a maternal and child health program that provides first-time mothers with knowledge and support throughout their pregnancy up until the child reaches the age of two. The NFP is an intervention for first time, low-income mothers starting in pregnancy. Through the BC Healthy Connections Project (BCHCP), this program is currently being scientifically evaluated, as such program has never been tested in within Canada.

The Children's Health Policy Center at Simon Fraser University (SFU) is leading the evaluation through the BCHCP, alongside McMaster University, BC Ministry of Health, BC Ministry of Children and Family Development and five regional health authorities in BC.
