The Funding and Sustainability subcommittee is chaired by Glenn Markenson, MD.
On September 30th, 2014, CDC awarded six states with the State-Based PQCs Cooperative Agreement (California, New York, Ohio, Illinois*, Massachusetts*, and North Carolina*). Funding will enhance the capabilities of PQCs to improve perinatal outcomes by improving the quality of perinatal care in their states. These PQCs will improve the quality of perinatal care in these states by reducing maternal morbidity and mortality, reducing scheduled deliveries without a medical indication (also known as elective deliveries) before 39 weeks gestation, increasing use and documentation of use of antenatal steroids for impending preterm births, increasing breastfeeding rates, and reducing hospital-acquired neonatal infections.*New states
