Guillermo T. 1991 (ca.). Hepatitis B Screening Access for Southeast Asians [Final report]. San Francisco, CA: Asian American Health Forum, 16 pp.

Annotation: Although the U.S. Public Health Service provides for hepatitis B surface antigen screening for pregnant women who are refugees, there is concern among many providers of care to the Asian American community that those eligible for these programs are not aware of or do not have access to the facilities that provide the appropriate care. In addition to the accessibility problem, the large majority of Southeast Asians must also deal with linguistic/cultural, structural, educational, and financial barriers which prevent them from receiving appropriate care. This project addressed these and other issues facing this population. All of the sites participating in this project were chosen for their experience and sensitivity in addressing the special needs of this community. The project's goal was to increase access to hepatitis B screening and immunization for Southeast Asian pregnant women and their newborns. [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]

Suitor C. 1990 (ca.). Committee on Nutritional Status During Pregnancy and Lactation [Final report]. Washington, DC: National Academy of Sciences , 42 pp.

Annotation: The purpose of the project was to: reevaluate the evidence pertaining to weight gain during pregnancy, nutrient supplementation during pregnancy, and the nutritional requirements of lactating mothers; formulate new recommendations pertaining to these maternal and child health issues if warranted by the evidence; and document the evidence, conclusions, and recommendations in three subcommittee reports. This project established an expert committee which evaluated and documented current scientific evidence on pregnancy and lactation and proposed nutritional recommendations for pregnant and lactating women. The goals of the project were to produce and participate in the dissemination of: two reports on nutrition during pregnancy related to the effort to decrease the infant mortality rate, the occurrence of low birth weight, and the occurrence of other adverse outcomes of pregnancy; and a report on nutrition during lactation relating to nationwide breastfeeding promotion efforts. As possible, special attention was to be given to recommendations for adolescents, women over the age of 35, and women of black, Hispanic, and Southeast Asian origin.
