Position Paper on Privacy and Security of Maternal Health Data
We cordially invite all interested parties to submit a paper on the topic of Privacy and Security of Maternal Health Data to be published by the MATCH Coalition in February 2021.
Maternal Health data is paramount to the improvement of maternity outcomes. However, maintaining the privacy of expectant mothers during their most vulnerable moments and ensuring security of related data are equally important. A 2020 study conducted by Reach indicated that over 80% of pregnant women are interested in the use of digital health technologies for the support of their pregnancy, and that they expected for their data to be secured.
