The 2005 Iowa Child and Family Household Health Survey (IHHS) was the second comprehensive, statewide effort to evaluate the health status, access to health care, and social environment of children in families in Iowa. The first IHHS was conducted in 2000. The 2005 IHHS was a collaboration between the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), the Public Policy Center (PPC), and the Child Health Specialty Clinics (CHSC). Funding for the 2005 was provided primarily by the IDPH, with additional funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
