The health disparities faced by Black women in the United States have reached a critical point: Black mothers are dying at starkly higher rates than white mothers.
Non-Hispanic Black women in the United States were 3.5 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than non-Hispanic white women in 2016 and 2017.
Closing this gap will require a better understanding of the root causes of these health inequities, including systemic racism, lack of access to quality health care, and socioeconomic barriers.
Your donation to PRB will help us continue to analyze and communicate research-based evidence to help inform decision-making and policy changes needed to save Black women’s lives.
We thank you for your support.
