Brief Overview of State MMR or PAMR

Mississippi’s Maternal Mortality Review Committee (MMRC) is currently in the developmental stages. It first convened in August of 2016 with a core advisory committee of 10 members. The full committee will convene in 2017 following passage of formal legislation to establish the MMRC. The committee will meet quarterly and review all pregnancy-associated cases. In 2014, Mississippi had 38,735 live births and 14 pregnancy related deaths. The goal of the Mississippi MMRC is to identify and review all pregnancy-associated deaths in Mississippi and generate effective strategies to reduce maternal mortality, improve maternal health and strengthen maternity care in Mississippi.
