The New Hampshire Birth Conditions Program (NH BCP) is a population-based, active surveillance program and is a collaborative effort between Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and the State of New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, under New Hampshire Statute Title X, Chapter 141-J

The NHBCP is funded by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and operates through guidance from an advisory committee of New Hampshire stakeholders.

The NHBCP will serve as a primary resource for information on (congenital) birth conditions in New Hampshire, and promote use of this information for improved surveillance, research, health care service delivery, and prevention.


The NHBCP will create and maintain a community of partners that value the tracking of birth conditions, use information to improve the care of affected children and families, and pro-actively work to prevent or reduce birth
conditions in New Hampshire.
