Project: Healthy Women Healthy Babies 3.0 Ref. #: HSS-24-024 Type: RFP Status: Open Open Date: Dec 20th 2023, 7:00 AM EST Questions Due Date: Jan 30th 2024, 12:00 PM EST Close Date: Mar 8th 2024, 1:00 PM EST Days Left: < 1 Project Description:A. Background The mission of the Division of Public Health is to protect and enhance the health of the people of Delaware. The Division accomplishes its mission by: • working together with others; • addressing issues that affect the health of Delawareans; • keeping track of the State’s health; • promoting positive lifestyles; • responding to critical health issues and disasters; • promoting the availability of health services. The accomplishment of this mission will facilitate the Division in realizing its vision of creating an environment in which people in Delaware can reach their full potential for a healthy life. In 2021, the U.S. infant mortality rate is 5.614 deaths per 1000 live births. For the 1st time Delaware’s infant mortality rate
(IMR) of 5.1 per 1,000 live births was lower than the U.S. IMR of 5.4. Between 2015 to 2021 Delaware’s IMR dropped by 43% and between 2015 to 2021 Delaware’s neonatal mortality rate dropped by 57%. The 5-year IMR for Delaware was lowest in the decade; the 5-year IMR decreased by 21% between 2010-2014 and 2017-2021; the 5-year neonatal mortality rate decreased by 27% between 2010-2014 and 2017-2021, yet the 5-year post neonatal mortality rate remained the same after a decade. 5-year IMR for Black (non-Hispanic) decreased by 10%; Hispanics saw a 39% decline; and White (non-Hispanics) saw a 29% decline during same time-period. The 5-year neonatal mortality rate for Black (non-Hispanic) decreased by 30%; Hispanics saw a 40% decline; and White (non-Hispanics) saw a 26% decline during same time-period and the 5-year post neonatal mortality rate for Black (non-Hispanic) increased by 63%. The 5-year IMR in the city of Wilmington decreased by 25% and the 5-year neonatal mortality rate in the city of Wilmington decreased by 48%; yet the 5-year post neonatal mortality rate in the city of Wilmington increased by 60%. With respect to of the place of residence, the 5-year Black (non-Hispanic) IMR was: • 3.8 times of White (non-Hispanic) rate in Kent County; • 3.3 times of White (non-Hispanic) rate in City of Wilmington; • 2.9 times of White (non-Hispanic) rate in Balance of New Castle County; and • 2.6 times of White (non-Hispanic) in Sussex County The preterm-related mortality rate, one of the leading causes of IMR, decreased by 37% between 2010-2021. The congenital-related mortality rate, another leading cause of IMR, decreased by 16% between 2010-2021. While sudden unexplained infant death (SUID) related mortality rate, another leading cause of IMR, increased by 11%. During 2010-2021: • 5-year preterm-related mortality rate for Black (non-Hispanic infants) decreased by 38%; Hispanic infants saw a 36% decline; and White (non-Hispanic infants) saw a 40% decline during same time-period. • 5-year sudden unexplained infant mortality rate for Black (non-Hispanic infants) increased by 57% while 5-year sudden unexplained infant mortality rate for White (non-Hispanics infants) decreased by 33%. Irrespective of whether the cause of death was preterm-related mortality or sudden unexplained infant death (SUID), the 5-year Black (non-Hispanic) IMR was: • 3.5 times of White (non-Hispanic) rate for preterm-related mortality; and • 3.6 times of White (non-Hispanic) rate for SUID. In reviewing the data from 2010-2021 there are certain high risk zip codes in the state where there is higher prevalence of : % teen births, % of women who had a live birth with high school education, % of births to Black women, % cigarette use during pregnancy, % Medicaid as a payor of delivery, % no prenatal care, % pre-pregnancy obesity, % pre-pregnancy diabetes, % gestational diabetes, % pre-pregnancy hypertension, % gestational hypertension, % previous preterm birth, % low birth weight, % preterm birth, % neonatal deaths (<28 weeks of gestation). These areas are portions of the following zip codes: 19720, 19702, 19801, 199804, 19706, 19734, 19977, 19901, 19938, 19962, 19979, 19964, 19934, 19952, 19954, 19941, 19950, 19933, and 19931. The decrease in these rates is commendable but the increasing gap in disparity needs to be addressed. B. Project Goals The Healthy Women Healthy Babies Program’s long-term goals are: ● Decrease in premature births; ● Decrease in low birth weight (LBW) and very low birth weight babies (VLBW); ● Decrease in disparity ratio of poor birth outcomes (for e.g., neonatal mortality and postnatal mortality between African American and White infants and Hispanic and White infants); ● Decrease in infant mortality; and ● Decreased birth defects. The goal of this project is to improve birth outcomes across the state by improving access to high quality preconception, and interconception care and collecting the requisite data to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of the program and to decrease the racial disparity in rates.
