    Increasing Access to Comprehensive Women’s Health Services and Reducing Infant Mortality

    The Maryland Community Health Resources Commission has awarded 11 grants, totaling more than $2.3 million to help expand access to comprehensive women’s health services in communities with the greatest need for these resources.

    The CHRC is collaborating with DHMH to implement a statewide strategic initiative to achieve Governor O’Malley’s goal of reducing infant mortality in Maryland. Reducing infant mortality is a public health priority in our state. Although Maryland is one of the wealthiest states, it has consistently ranked among the worst for infant mortality. Significant progress toward reducing infant mortality and improving birth outcomes in Maryland that had been achieved during the 1990’s have now stalled, with virtually no further improvement for nearly a decade. The aim of these grants is to achieve significant improvements in birth outcomes, reduce infant mortality and low-birth weight infants, and improve access to timely prenatal and other essential health care services for women.
