Covid - 19
One Team. One Objective.
AkuessonHI.org will be working to address the concerns that have been raised about the effect of COVID-19 in pregnant individuals. While the data analysis from CDC increases our knowledge of the impact of COVID-19 on pregnant women, more robust and complete data, including data on race/ethnicity, are needed to truly understand the impact of COVID-19 on pregnancy.
AkuessonHI.org is a strategic company that provides certified contact tracers and can partner with local health organization in Africa in the fight against COVID-19.
AkuessonHI.org encourages his members and all clinicians who care for pregnant patients with known or suspected COVID-19 to submit information to an appropriate COVID-19 registry to augment the collective knowledge about the effect of COVID-19 during pregnancy.
Clinicians should counsel pregnant women and those contemplating pregnancy about the potential risk for severe illness from COVID-19, and measures to prevent infection with SARS-CoV-2 should be emphasized for pregnant women and their families.
Pregnant individuals in particular are encouraged to take all available precautions to optimize health and avoid exposure to COVID-19 including:
Community Mitigation Efforts
Community mitigation efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 will be implemented across the AkuessonHI.org Network. Although these efforts are important, ob-gyns and other health care professionals should be aware of the unintended effect they may have, including limiting access to routine prenatal care.
AkuessonHI.org will continue to provide medically necessary prenatal care, referrals, and consultations, although modifications to health care delivery approaches may be necessary. Ob-gyns and other prenatal care professionals also should consider creating a plan to address the possibility of a, potential shortage of personal protective equipment, and limited isolation rooms.
