Purpose

The Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System Program (PRAMS) provides funding to support collection of population-based data on maternal and child health indicators that can be used to monitor the prevalence of maternal behaviors and experiences to inform programs, research, and systems changes that influence maternal and infant health.

PRAMS has 3 components:

  1. Component A: Core Surveillance - To implement population-based surveillance on selected maternal behaviors and experiences that occur prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy, including emerging issues, among women with a recent live birth, in up to 53 vital records jurisdictions
  2. Component B: Point-in-time Tribal Surveillance - To implement point-in-time (one time, one birth year) surveillance on selected maternal behaviors and experiences that occur prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy among women with a recent live birth in up to 2 federally recognized American Indian Tribes, Alaska Native Villages, or Urban Indian Organizations with at least 1,000 live births annually or tribal organizations that support American Indian Tribes, Alaska Native Villages or Urban Indian Organizations with a project area that covers at least 1,000 live births annually
  3. Component C: Stillbirth Surveillance - To implement population-based surveillance on selected maternal behaviors and experiences that occur prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy among women who recently experienced a stillbirth, in up to 2 vital records jurisdictions
