Recent enactment of program consolidation block grants proposed by the Reagan administration has left many observers of public health services wondering about the impact of such a change on categorical programs in maternal and child health (MCH). This study first presents predictions about the future of 23 specific MCH services, derived from a modified Delphi Survey of MCH experts, and then examines the implications of these predictions for future public health.
