The Wisconsin Perinatal Quality Collaborative formed in August 2014. Our mission is “to improve perinatal health outcomes and equity across the continuum for all women and infants in Wisconsin.” WisPQC members are various organizations and agencies. Currently, WAPC provides administrative support and leadership to WisPQC through a grant from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
Through WisPQC, Wisconsin has the opportunity to leverage the energy of like-minded local, regional, and statewide organizations to form a lasting structure that will formally and systematically improve the quality of perinatal care and outcomes.

Q: Why does Wisconsin need a perinatal quality collaborative?
Q: Who can be a member?
- Organizations are members. Organizations identify individuals who represent their interests.
- A large organization may have departments or divisions that could be considered for membership in the WisPQC. Departments or divisions of larger organizations can have representatives in the WisPQC if the individual departments or divisions represent unique perspectives. Organizations will participate in initiatives in ways that reflect their own overall objectives. For example, academic institutions could incorporate educational changes into their curricula.
- Individuals cannot be members of the WisPQC. (The WisPQC may ask individuals to serve as content experts or consultants to the WisPQC, but the individuals will not be considered members.)
