New: HC One Issue Brief: Creating Policy for Equitable Doula Access

 

We are thrilled to announce the release of the HealthConnect One (HC One) Issue Brief: Creating Policy for Equitable Doula Access. It’s very exciting that communities and states across the country are looking at doula access. We  think it’s really important that we talk about what is a doula and what’s a community-based doula and how they are different. This issue brief also covers processes and approaches to setting up policy that will provide equitable doula access.

The purpose of this high-level brief is to help states think about how they are going to move forward on creating policy for equitable doula access. As we know, with communities across the country, we can work with our public departments of health and other entities that want to address this issue. Please download and read our policy brief and share with your networks.
