What is the MHP?

The Maternal Health Project is a think tank dedicated to advancing women's health by developing innovative and equitable approaches to care. Our mission is to challenge traditional models of women's health and find new ways to expand access, improve outcomes, and promote health and well-being for all women, regardless of background, status, or ability. We understand that it isn’t the job of one stakeholder to repair and resolve the current women’s health crisis. Instead all of the players need limits removed to take actionable steps in the right path forward.
