Our Community Partners

Active Partners and Previous Collaborators

At MAC, we accomplish our goals by working in partnership with a variety of organizations, from the state Office of Public Health to faith- and community-based organizations that serve the New Orleans area. We help to build capacity of local organizations who serve women by providing assistance with program development, evaluation, data collection, and analysis. At a larger level, we are embarking on community-based participatory research programs to ensure that programs aimed at women’s health are sustainable, and we are bringing many local organizations and both health and non-health players to the table. A strong partnership is the foundation for the work we do, and we acknowledge the important contributions of the following organizations:
