Rooting out inequities in maternal and infant health.
The Mom and Baby Action Network (M-BAN) is a national action-oriented coalition of cross-sector partners leading broad changes in policy, research, funding and systems to address inequities in maternal and infant health.
We aim to achieve equity in maternal and infant health outcomes by centering the voices and experiences of local communities and mobilizing partners, companies, organizations, subject matter experts, policy-makers, advocates and leaders nationally around a common agenda and shared metrics of success.
March of Dimes serves as the backbone organization for M-BAN, providing technical assistance, guidance, training, tools, resources and communication platforms to effectively connect partners and accelerate collective action.
March of Dimes is an active collaborator and partner directly working to advance programs, research and policies to ensure that every mom and baby is healthy.
This implicit bias training course, developed by March of Dimes, provides health care professionals with important insights to recognize and remedy implicit bias in maternity care settings. This unique learning experience delivered in-person or through a self-paced, e-learning platform provides authentic and compelling content for health care providers caring for women before, during and after pregnancy.
The EHD Centers support research efforts, mentoring, capacity building, research translation and information dissemination, and are designed to address program-specific research priorities.
This March of Dimes press release describes support for our Local Collective Impact Initiatives in Shreveport and New Orleans.
Every family can have the best possible start. But today, too many moms and babies are dying or experiencing serious health complications related to childbirth—and far too many are moms and babies of color. Only by working together can we confront inequities and ensure the health and wellbeing of every family.
