The Maternal Home Collaborative

The Fund for Public Health NYC and The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene are working to reduce pregnancy-associated death among Black women and birthing people in NYC by 10% by 2030.  A key step to help meet this goal is to launch – with your support – the Maternal Home Collaborative (MHC).

Designed to address the root cause of Black maternal health inequities – structural racism – a pilot of the MHC will reinvest in three, under-resourced priority neighborhoods and center Black women and birthing people and their infants in all actions and interventions. Through community-based clinical care, brick-and-mortar community spaces, and social supports (peer-to-peer groups, counseling, home visits, etc.), the MHC will help pregnant New Yorkers and their families not only survive but also thrive. 

The infographic below shows a clear and informative overview of the Maternal Home Collaborative (MHC) and its innovative four-pillar approach to improving Black maternal health in NYC:
