State Perinatal Quality Collaboratives

State perinatal quality collaboratives (PQCs) are state or multi-state networks of teams working to improve the quality of care for mothers and babies. Many states currently have active collaboratives, and others are in development. CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health (DRH) is currently providing support for state-based PQCs in Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Wisconsin. To learn about the perinatal quality improvement work supported by CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health, see Success Stories.

PQC available– information (e.g., a website or contact information) is available about a self-identified perinatal quality organization in the state
PQC in development– information is available about activities to start or build a PQC in the state
Unknown– we do not have information about the status of a PQC in the state

If you have an update for this webpage about your state PQC (for example, launch of a new PQC or a new website), please e-mail drhinfo@cdc.gov.
