The National Accreta Foundation is a non-profit corporation founded in April 2017.
Our mission: Eliminating preventable maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity attributable to placenta accreta.
This goal will be achieved through a reduction in the incidence of preventable placenta accreta cases by lowering the rate of low-risk primary cesarean births nationwide to 23.9% or lower*, lowering the rate of low-risk repeat cesarean births to 81.7% or lower* and increasing the number of hospitals staffed and equipped to provide the appropriate level of care required for patients with previous cesarean sections and diagnosed cases of placenta accreta.
Our organization will partner with federal, state and local public health agencies and organizations, hospitals and health systems, medical and hospital associations, and insurance payers and purchasers to create multi-stakeholder agendas and strategies for the prevention, measurement and safe management of placenta accreta.
