The National Institutes of Health will fund six research projects to examine disparities in pregnancy-related complications and deaths among disproportionately affected women, including racial and ethnic minority groups, underprivileged women and those in underserved rural settings.

The grants could total about $21 million over five years, pending available funds, and include projects at Tufts University in Boston; the University of South Carolina at Columbia; University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia; Emory University in Atlanta; Michigan State University in East Lansing; and University of Pittsburgh.
