Mayor's Innovation Project Panel on Maternal and Reproductive Health

Saturday, November 3, 2018

Is your city successfully working to address women’s health issues? Do you have a mayor that is leading this movement?

The Mayors Innovation Project is a national learning network for mayors and their staff. Around the country, cities are taking the lead on pressing social issues—climate change, infrastructure, economic revitalization, health care, prison reentry, and so much more. We support and encourage this innovation by providing cutting-edge thinking and concrete examples that your city can use right away.

This project is seeking any and all examples of good work happening on the city level that positively impacts women’s health that we can amplify and share with our networks for them to learn from and replicate. This could include but isn’t limited to:

• Preventing teenage pregnancy
• Access to long acting reversible contraceptives & other forms of birth control
• Maternal health – all ideas welcome, but particularly how cities might be addressing the racial disparities in maternal mortality and morbidity
• Ways cities are supporting working moms – via either paid sick leave, or other means
• How cities are proactively addressing social determinants of women’s health as a means of creating a healthier population – preventative care starting with pre-natal through adulthood, walkable/healthy communities, access to transportation and healthy food for example.

Please contact the NALBOH office if your city is working towards advancing women's health!
