Public Law No: 115-344 (12/21/2018)

Preventing Maternal Deaths Act of 2018

(Sec. 2) This bill amends the Public Health Service Act to reauthorize through FY2023 and revise certain Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) programs that support state and local surveillance of maternal mortality.

Among other changes, the bill authorizes the CDC to support state and tribal maternal mortality review committees. Such committees must collect, analyze, and report specified data relating to pregnancy-associated deaths (i.e., deaths from any cause during, or within one year of, pregnancy) and pregnancy-related deaths (i.e., deaths from any cause during, or within one year of, pregnancy that are related to pregnancy or its management, excluding accidental or incidental causes).
