A goal of I PROMOTE-IL is to improve the collection, analysis, and application of state-level data on maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity. We collaborate with the Illinois Department of Public Health to share key findings on maternal mortality and morbidity by hosting presentations and disseminating published reports to members of the Illinois Maternal Health Task Force and other stakeholders.
The Illinois Maternal Health Task Force identified Maternal Health Data for Action as a strategic priority area with the objective of increasing awareness, access, and use of maternal health data resources to inform efforts to reduce severe maternal morbidity and maternal mortality. Emphasis is on promoting existing data resources and where feasible, adapting these resources to better meet the needs of partners working to improve maternal health.
