Mental Health Awareness and Maternal Health Month
This May, Unite Us is recognizing maternal health by highlighting a collaborative approach to improving maternal and child health outcomes.
Improving maternal and child health outcomes is a top priority for decision-makers and community stakeholders across the country. However, we continue to have the highest maternal death rate of all developed countries, and we are the only industrialized nation with a rising rate. At Unite Us, we know we can do better. That’s why we are dedicated to advancing equity and improving maternal health outcomes for all pregnant people and new parents.
In a new issue brief, we discuss maternal health challenges and priorities in the U.S. You will learn:
- Contributing factors to maternal health inequities
- Key policy priorities to improve maternal health
- Data solutions that take a human-centered approach to identifying needs and improving outcomes
