Milwaukee Adolescent Health Program

Where Teens Come First

The Medical College of Wisconsin and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin are making a difference in the lives of adolescents in Milwaukee. Through their support, the Milwaukee Adolescent Health Program (MAHP) has become a health care agency that provides critical medical services to teenagers in the central city. We continue to develop innovative programs to provide accessible prevention services, and medical care to adolescents. Providers best serve adolescents when they understand the importance of privacy, respect, and support in the care of their patients. Our ultimate goal is to prevent and relieve medical, and psychosocial problems in our clients allowing them to attain a positive, productive future.
