___________________________________________________________________

Too many babies in the United States are born preterm, of low birth weight, or with birth defects. In 2008, the U.S. infant mortality rate was 6.61 per 1,000 live births. In the 2005 international rankings, the United States ranked 30th in infant mortality, behind other developed countries including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, and most European countries. Improving the health of women of childbearing age, before they conceive, is essential to changing these trends, yet millions of women do not receive evidence-based prevention services, primary care, and treatment due to a lack of health coverage or limited access to quality care. Many women do not currently benefit from clinical and community preventive services that could improve their health for a lifetime and help them have healthy babies when, and if, they choose to do so. Unfortunately, many women also continue to face multiple barriers such as violence and poverty and might live in neighborhoods that impede their ability to reach their full potential for health and well-being. The objectives of this action plan are to advance the knowledge of women and their partners, increase the availability of evidence-based services, and improve the health of communities in our nation.
