The purpose of the review is to determine the factors contributing to maternal mortality in Kansas and identify public health and clinical interventions to improve systems of care. Maternal Mortality includes deaths occurring during pregnancy and up to one year after pregnancy.


The mission is to increase awareness of the issues surrounding pregnancy-related death and to promote change among individuals, communities, and healthcare systems in order to reduce the number of deaths.


The Maternal Mortality Review Committee’s vision is to eliminate preventable maternal deaths in Kansas.
