Walmart, Johnson & Johnson and CareSource Team Up to Improve Maternal and Infant Health
In the U.S., Black women are three times more likely to die during pregnancy and postpartum than white women. CareSource is seeking to improve Black maternal health outcomes in Georgia through collaboration with world-class organizations, Walmart and Johnson & Johnson.
The collaboration aims to address maternal health rates in Georgia through pre-pregnancy planning and prenatal and postnatal care initiatives. In Georgia, CareSource is the sole health plan collaborator and pilot programs are underway.
This partnership and pilot program address factors that perpetuate the Black maternal health crisis by offering solutions such as high-touch pregnancy care, health care provider education and self-care support.
Additionally, CareSource has partnered with Walmart to hold four Baby Days events in the Atlanta area—two in March and two expected in September. These events offer expecting moms, parents and caregivers access to family planning, pregnancy and baby care education and resources. March events attracted more than 1,200 attendees, offered opportunities to learn about baby care and connected attendees with community resources.
