CDC Science Clips: Volume 12, Issue 43, December 1, 2020
Science Clips is produced weekly to enhance awareness of emerging scientific knowledge for the public health community. Each article features an Altmetric Attention scoreexternal icon to track social and mainstream media mentions!
This week Science Clips is pleased to feature articles from the Annals of Internal Medicine supplement - Maternal Health in the United States: Findings from the Health Resources and Services Administration and Partners.
Maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity are critical health issues in the United States, with unacceptably high rates and striking disparities, particularly by race, ethnicity, and geography. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has taken a leading role in addressing these issues through health promotion, risk prevention, and the training of health care professionals to identify and treat early warning signs. HRSA is the primary U.S. federal agency charged with improving the health care of individuals who are geographically isolated, economically, or medically vulnerable.
In June 2018, HRSA hosted a Maternal Mortality Summit, “Promising Global Practices to Improve Maternal Health Outcomes,” convening maternal health experts from Brazil, Canada, Finland, India, Rwanda, the United Kingdom, and the World Health Organization (WHO), to discuss evidence-based approaches for improving maternal health. Following this Summit, HRSA developed a special supplement to the Annals of Internal Medicine focused on maternal health in the United States. HRSA experts and partners contributed to the journal articles, which address specific HRSA maternal health initiatives, the impact of opioid use during pregnancy, and issues faced by rural populations.
This special collection of articles, “Maternal Health in the United States: Findings from the Health Resources and Services Administration and Partners," was published in the December 1 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Special thanks to the guest editors for this issue: Catherine J. Vladutiu, PhD, MPH, HRSA Maternal and Child Health Bureau; Sylvia K. Fisher, PhD, HRSA Office of Planning, Analysis, and Evaluation; and Gopal K. Singh, PhD, MS, MSc, DPS, HRSA Office of Health Equity.
