2. Reduce infant mortality and the incidence of preventable diseases and handicapping conditions among children;
3. Provide rehabilitative services for blind and disabled individuals under the age of 16 years receiving benefits under Title XVI (Supplemental Security Income), to the extent medical assistance for such services is not provided under Title XIX (Medicaid); and
4. Provide and promote family-centered, community-based, coordinated care for children with special health care needs and to facilitate the development of community-based systems of service for such children and their families.
