                   About the Addressing Opioid Use Disorder in Pregnant Women and New Moms Challenge

Women who are pregnant or new mothers struggling with Opioid Use Disorder face a variety of barriers in obtaining safe and effective care and treatment. Women and families in rural and under-resourced communities are particularly affected.

The Addressing Opioid Use Disorder in Pregnant Women and New Moms Challenge will award $375,000 in prizes to support tech innovations to improve access to quality health care, including substance use disorder treatment, recovery, and support services for pregnant women with opioid use disorders, their infants, and families, especially those in rural and geographically isolated areas.
