CDC’s Enhancing Reviews and Surveillance to Eliminate Maternal Mortality (ERASE Maternal Mortality) initiative provides tools for Maternal Mortality Review Committees (MMRC) to document discrimination, including racism, using the Maternal Mortality Review Information Application (MMRIA).
CDC’s ERASE Maternal Mortality initiative partners with state or other jurisdictional health agencies as well as many national organizations including the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists, Black Mamas Matter Alliance, CDC Foundation, Emory University, National Birth Equity Collaborative, National Indian Health Board, and others in pursuit of equity in maternal health outcomes. These partnerships promote development of job aids and guidance documents that further assist MMRCs in identifying and documenting contextual factors throughout case review. Our work together facilitates more effective MMRC collaborations for preventing maternal mortality.
