OHA Maternal Health Initiative OHA's maternal health initative is focused on improving maternal health outcomes across Ohio. Maternal health is identified as the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period. OHA established a Maternal Health Steering Committee in 2019 to: recommend clinical initiatives for improving maternal health outcomes across Ohio; develop strategies for adoption of priority initiatives; define performance measures, goals and targets for each of the priority initiatives; and advise OHA staff on policies and strategies that support member organizations. One of the identified goals of this committee is to eliminate racial inequities in maternal health outcomes. Our Partners: Ohio Department of Health, The Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health, Ohio Council to Advance Maternal Health, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and others.
