  • Description:
    In the 2013 Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act (PAHPRA), pregnant women are specifically named as a population with special clinical needs. There is a need for more data to be collected and analyzed promptly after a disaster, but there is a lack of standard approaches for data collection among pregnant women. Existing surveillance mechanisms are often inconsistent across states, and measures cannot be compared. Furthermore, population-based sampling yields little information on pregnant women who comprise about 1% of the general population. Even with the addition of postpartum women, this comprises <5% of women of reproductive age 15-44 years old. We propose collecting additional information on pregnant women when conducting post-disaster morbidity surveillance using a form similar to the Natural Disaster Morbidity Surveillance (NDMS) form. Morbidity surveillance is normally conducted during the disaster relief phase, i.e., <30 days post- disaster. For catastrophic disasters, this phase may be extended.
