Adolescent Health / Youth Health Improvement Initiative (YHII)
The Youth Health Improvement Initiative (YHII) began in 2001 through partnership between Vermont Maternal and Child Health (MCH), the Vermont Child Health Improvement Program (VCHIP), Vermont Medicaid and private insurers. Since 2001, the project
has influenced over 70 pediatric and family medicine practices across the state of Vermont.
Currently, our efforts are targeted at understanding why adolescents do not access annual well visits with Vermont providers who are well trained to deliver excellent, comprehensive services.
