Birth Equity Action Map
The Birth Equity Action Map describes urgent actions needed by specific system actors (i.e., birth equity partners) in the next 5 years to improve birth and racial equity, and highlights where in the system funders can have the most impact with their dollars. The map was created with funding from the Pritzker Children’s Initiative by AMCHP, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, and Vijaya K Hogan Consulting LLC in collaboration with national, state, and local birth equity partners.
This is a starting point for understanding the system, but we recognize this is not all of the possible needed actions. We hope this will be used as inspiration for individuals, organizations, and coalitions to strategize on their role in advancing birth equity and identify the most urgent and influential actions in their contexts that they can impact.
