On Thursday, Dec. 13, the Senate approved H.R. 1318, the Preventing Maternal Deaths Act, which means the bill is now headed to the President for signature into law! Thank you again to all of our members, partners, and advocates who played a part in this bill’s success!

Upon passage, AMCHP issued the following statement: “Republicans and Democrats came together to say that our nation is committed to ending preventable maternal deaths. This is a huge step forward toward empowering states and communities to take actions necessary to reach that goal.”
