Department of Health
128. To ask the Minister for Health the measures and initiatives that will be taken to better understand and to reduce still-birth and infant deaths among mothers of African background, and those in poorer social-economic groups following the publication of a report (details supplied) showing inequalities in mortality; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [46190/22]
As the National Women and Infants Health Programme leads on the management, organisation and delivery of maternity, gynaecological and neonatal services, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the Deputy directly, as soon as possible.
