Leadership Team

The Maternal Health Network represents a collection of individuals and organizations who have come together to help improve the experience and 

outcomes for families who are planning to get pregnant, those who are pregnant, and those who have recently delivered a child.

The Leadership Team consists of cross-sector leaders, decision makers and community members who provide strategic direction, champion the Network’s efforts and align their own organization’s work to the collaborative plan of action. The Leadership Team is made up from representatives of the following agencies and will continue to meet throughout plan implementation to monitor activity and to modify the approach to goal achievement when necessary.
