The National Institutes of Health announced it will award up to $400,000 to fund groups or individuals looking to design effective, innovative methods for identifying complication risks in first-time pregnancies. Through the Decoding Maternal Morbidity Data Challenge, NIH will award $50,000 to seven winners designing the most effective means to analyze the data, and an additional $10,000 to the top five winners whose methods identify risk factors in disadvantaged populations. NIH encourages applicants to develop methods addressing the needs of communities disproportionately affected by maternal mortality and morbidity, including Black and Indigenous/Alaskan Native women
