Minnesota Perinatal Quality Collaborative

The Minnesota Perinatal Quality Collaborative (MNPQC) is a network of organizations, medical providers, content experts, and community voices led by Minnesota Perinatal Organization (MPO) in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). We seek to improve perinatal and infant health outcomes with an emphasis on improving health equity for all birthing people.
