Looking back a year after Black Health’s Black Mother’s Matter webinar and COVID continues to highlight decades of disparities in health, that communities of color have had to live through. Have any maternal health disparities been addressed in this time?

Presenter:
Marsha Jones, Executive Director of the Afiya Center

The racial and ethnic disparities that exist in pregnancy-related deaths continues to increase in the mist of COVID, although, the CDC states that 60% of all maternal deaths are preventable. Black women are most disproportionately affected with a mortality rate of 37.1 deaths per 100,000 live births, compared to 14.7 deaths per 100,000 live births and 11.8 deaths per 100,000 live births for White and Hispanic women.

Join Marsha Jones, Executive Director Afiya Center for the second event in this three-part series, with a national overview of maternal health, with a call to action on policies that address maternal health equity.
