The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors has directed the Public Health Department to work with providers and stakeholders throughout the county to address perinatal equity and black infant health. The Public Health Department asked Hospital Council to help bring hospitals together to create a Hospital Task Force focused on perinatal equity. The task force will create an inventory of what hospitals are doing to address perinatal equity and black infant health in their facilities, including training they are conducting to address health equity and creating common matrixes to measure perinatal equity.
