New CDC Report- Maternal Mortality Rates in the United States, 2022 (May 2024)

3 May 2024 7:12 PM | Deborah Hodges (Administrator)

The A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds the number of US women dying from pregnancy-related issues remains at crisis level. The persistent racial and ethnic disparities reflect how systems and policies continue to fail people of color, especially our most vulnerable populations. {March of Dimes and CDC] 

The fact is, we have not improved as a nation, and the same healthcare systems that have historically failed women of color continue to do so today, putting too many moms at risk of dying. 

From Dr. Elizabeth Cherot, President and CEO of March of Dimes.
