CDC Foundation Partnership to Help Reduce Maternal Mortality in the United States

Strong, accurate data are critical for identifying opportunities for preventing deaths among mothers and designing effective interventions. A new collaboration between the CDC Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs will produce stronger data than ever before and foster collaboration that can lead to effective interventions. Funding for the collaboration was provided through an award agreement with Merck on behalf of its Merck for Mothers program.

Building U.S. Capacity to Review and Prevent Maternal Deaths

MMRIABuilding U.S. Capacity to Review and Prevent Maternal Deaths promotes the maternal mortality review process as the best way to understand why maternal mortality in the United States is increasing, and identify interventions to prevent maternal deaths. It supports essential review functions and enables data to be combined across jurisdictions for national learning, which was not previously possible. The initiative is a collaboration between the CDC Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP). Funding for the collaboration was provided through an award agreement with Merck on behalf of its Merck for Mothers program.
