FUTURE PROJECTS

Racial disparities in maternal and infant mortality and life expectancy in Maryland

Background There is ample historical evidence that Non-Hispanic Blacks (NHBs) have the highest infant and maternal mortality rates and the lowest life expectancy across racial and ethnic groups in the USA. Maryland mirrors the national profile in these health indices. Objective This review aims to highlight the counties in Maryland with significant racial disparities in maternal and infant mortality rates and life expectancy, highlight the identified contributory factors and make recommendations on how Historically Black Colleges and Universities can be critical partners in providing solutions. Methods Google Scholar and PubMed electronic databases were used for literature extraction. Inclusion criteria: peer-reviewed published literature assessing racial disparities in infant and maternal mortality and life expectancy; data from the CDC and state health departments. Exclusion criteria: unverified data sources; studies without data on African American population.
