HHS Begins Final Round of Pregnancy Hypertension Research

11 projects were selected to refine the care process into reproducible steps.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) kicked off the final round of its research competition addressing hypertension during pregnancy this month, distributing $100,000 to the 11 finalists. These awardees were selected because of the outcomes of their small-scale clinical trials. In this final phase of the research competition, the finalists will use the funding to show how their process can be expanded and effectively utilized in a variety of settings.

“By recognizing innovative programs addressing hypertension during pregnancy and maternal health disparities across the nation, we reaffirm our commitment to ensuring nationwide maternal health excellence and equity,” said Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine. “Community-tailored solutions increasing access to and coverage of comprehensive maternal health care are critical in achieving health equity.”
