THE ALABAMA MATERNAL HEALTH TASK FORCE

 

The Alabama Perinatal Quality Collaborative received the State Maternal Health Innovation and Data Capacity Program award (Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau) to establish the Alabama Maternal Health Task Force (AL-MHTF).

The purpose of the AL-MHTF is to develop a collective vision for maternal health improvement across the state and drive sustainable change. The AL-MHTF is made up of a diverse group of partners including representatives from government agencies, private and non-profit sectors, insurance providers, civic organizations, healthcare systems, universities, faith-based and community groups, families, patient advocates, and many more. The AL-MHTF members began work in 2023 to create a strategic plan which addresses the following key priority areas:

Grow and strengthen the maternal health workforce.

Provide tools and a platform for community voice and patient advocacy.

Improve patient access to continuous, high quality care.

Improve data collection and sharing.

Identify and grow the programs and policies that work to improve the health of Alabama moms.
