Novant Health recently announced its three-tiered strategy to address disparities in maternal and infant health, with a focus on the following three areas:

  • Improving access to early and adequate prenatal care
  • Recognizing and addressing deficits in social determinants of health (SDoH)
  • Mitigating unconscious bias through proactive education and training

Infant mortality, fetal death and stillbirths occur at a higher rate in Black children. The drastic disparities centered on the maternal and infant health experience will be a central focus of Novant Health’s strategic approach.
