To curb the rising rates of maternal morbidity and death and poor infant health outcomes, birthing people must have access to high-quality health care throughout their lives.
This working group advances solutions to address the shortage of maternity care providers and facilities, issues tied to health care insurance coverage and affordability, provider bias and access to culturally congruent care, and overall gaps in quality of health care.
They will take actions that include:
Women’s Health Integration Specialist, SSM Health Maternal Services, St. Louis, MO, and Director of Policy for the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health (NPWH).
Alabama Department of Public Health
Independent Consultant and Clinician
