Brief Overview of State MMR or PAMR
Louisiana’s Pregnancy Associated Mortality Review (PAMR) Committee convened in 2010. The state has reviewed maternal deaths in some capacity, however, since 1992. The current committee has about 30 rotating members, meets quarterly, and reviews all pregnancy-associated and related cases. From 2013 to 2015, Louisiana had 191,832 live births and 198 pregnancy-associated or pregnancy-related deaths. The goal of the Louisiana PAMR is to identify and review all pregnancy-associated and related deaths in Louisiana to develop effective interventions to reduce maternal mortality.
