Black Maternal Health APPG

First Registered: 25/08/2021 • Last updated on: 24/01/2024

As highlighted in the Dispatches documentary 'The Black Maternity Scandal', Black women are four times more likely to die in pregnancy and childbirth. The APPG aims to raise awareness of the issue of racial disparities within maternal healthcare and offer solutions to end this.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
