Addressing Maternal Child Health Through Awareness  (AMEA)

In Oklahoma, approximately 2% of all births result in a pregnancy complication or mortality, ranking the state 38th in the nation (Metriarch, 2019). The issue becomes more dire for minority women throughout the United States, with black women experiencing maternal mortality that is 2-3 times greater than that of white women (Oklahoma State Department of Health, 2018).

The goal of AMEA is to collaboratively build upon recommendations from Healthy People 2020 to develop a pathway for understanding and supporting healthy pregnancy outcomes by focusing on systemic issues in maternal care delivery for minority women.
