Today is Maternal Health Awareness Day!

Cultivating Partnerships for

Maternal Health

#MaternalHealthAwarenessDay gives us the opportunity to bring attention to the crisis of maternal mortality and focus on strategies that help all mothers and birthing people thrive. There is a role for everyone to play – from clinical care to policy solutions, innovative programs, and partnerships.

We're continuing our partnership with the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) and together are launching #AIMforInnovation, an effort to elevate important maternal health equity resources for health professionals. We are excited to launch this campaign in February!

#AIMforInnovation is a social media campaign designed to highlight innovations and push for new approaches to address maternal health in the U.S. Join the campaign by clicking the button below to download and share content. Updates are made monthly, so check often.

New Module

Centering Equity in Maternal Health Innovation through Policy and Engagement

MHLIC has launched its first interactive online module. Starting with an overview of current maternal health data in the US and some common definitions of equity, the module then outlines ways to center equity in maternal health through probing questions and areas for consideration. Numerous resources, including videos, links to external websites and documents, and interactive “quizzes” are woven throughout to make the content accessible and relevant.
