Emergency Preparedness and Response Resources for Maternal & Child Health (MCH) Populations

Tuesday, June 16 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET

The CDC Division of Reproductive Health (DRH) has responded to disasters for more than a decade from the Sept. 11 attacks to the Ebola Virus outbreak in West Africa. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the need for literature and resources to address critical questions regarding the impact of disasters for women of reproductive age, pregnant, and postpartum women became evident. DRH collaborated with local, state, and federal partners to develop a wide array of tools to assess post-disaster reproductive health needs and respond to them. These tools apply to a variety of disasters including natural disasters, infectious disease outbreaks, and preparedness for an anthrax bioterrorism event.
In partnership with the CDC DRH, the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) is hosting a webinar to highlight resources available for states to assist with disaster preparedness. The webinar Emergency Preparedness and Response Resources for MCH Populations, is scheduled for Tuesday, June 16 at 2:00 PM, EST.

Featured Speakers:

Sascha Ellington, MSPH, CPH, Epidemiologist, Strengthening Emergency Preparedness and Response for Reproductive Health
Dana Meaney-Delman, MD, MPH, Medical Officer, Unique Challenges of Protecting Pregnant and Postpartum Women During an Anthrax Incident
Mary Ellen Simpson, R.N., Ph.D., Instructor of Community Health, Implementing the RHAD Toolkit to Improve MCH Services

After this webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Identify disaster effects associated with the health of pregnant and postpartum and other women of reproductive age
2. Identify unique challenges that would arise for pregnant and postpartum women during an anthrax incident
3. Discuss how the Reproductive Health After Disaster (RHAD) toolkit can be used to identify the unmet MCH needs during the recovery phase of a disaster
