An Urban Perinatal Health Programme of Strategies to Improve Perinatal Health

Samenvatting

Promotion of a healthy pregnancy is a top
priority of the health care policy in many European countries.
Perinatal mortality is an important indicator of the
success of this policy. Recently, it was shown that the
Netherlands has relatively high perinatal death rates when
compared to other European countries. This is in particular
true for large cities where perinatal mortality rates are
20–50% higher than elsewhere. Consequently in the
Netherlands, there is heated debate on how to tackle these
problems. Without the introduction of measures throughout
the entire perinatal health care chain, pregnancy outcomes
are difficult to improve. With the support of health care
professionals, the City of Rotterdam and the Erasmus
University Medical Centre have taken the initiative to
develop an urban perinatal health programme called
‘Ready for a Baby’. The main objective of this municipal
10-year programme is to improve perinatal health and to
reduce perinatal mortality in all districts to at least the
current national average of l0 per 1000. Key elements are
the understanding of the mechanisms of the large health
differences between women living in deprived and nondeprived
urban areas. Risk guided care, orientation towards
shared-care and improvement of collaborations between
health care professionals shapes the interventions that are
being developed. Major attention is given to the development
of methods to improve risk-selection before and
during pregnancy and methods to reach low-educated and
immigrant groups
