Reproductive health rights are under attack with grave implications for health equity. The looming rollback of the right to abortion will adversely affect access to healthcare and the opportunity for health equity for birthing people across the U.S.

Join the P4HE Collaborative as we discuss pregnancy-related mortality through the lens of abortion access and other policy decisions like Medicaid expansion. We will also discuss community- and culturally centered birthing work and the need for cross-sector collaboration in this space.

During this webinar we will:

--Highlight the state of pregnancy-related mortality in women and birthing people and racial/ethnic inequities.

--Address the importance of access to abortion and Medicaid expansion.

--Explore next steps by identifying solutions that will reduce pregnancy-related mortality rates and address inequities.
