MATERNAL
HEALTH

AHHA and our partners are working to improve maternal health outcomes by establishing and promoting best practices for care.

 

Current work includes partnering with the Alaska State Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public Health / Women’s, Children’s, and Family Unit to reduce severe maternal morbidity and mortality through the Alaska Perinatal Quality Collaborative and the Maternal Child Death Review Committee (MCDR). In addition a public campaign, It Takes All of Us, was created to provide resources for pregnant and postpartum people, their family and friends, and providers.

The Maternal Child Death Review (MCDR) is a partnership with the Alaska State Department of Health and Human Services Division of Public Health / Women’s, Children’s, and Family Unit to reduce severe maternal morbidity and mortality. Volunteer members of the MCDR Committee publish and promote a comprehensive list of recommendations with the goal of preventing future maternal deaths. 

It Takes All of Us is a campaign created to provide resources for pregnant and postpartum people, their family and friends, and providers. This page offers links to materials, videos, and connections with community resources that support maternal health outcomes.
