              What is PIPS?

              The PIPS project is a multi-sector collaborative endeavor based out of Johns Hopkins to gather national scale statistics on pregnancy outcomes for women who are pregnant while incarcerated. Twenty-two state prison systems, six jails (including the 5 five largest), and three departments of juvenile justice are reporting to our study database on a monthly basis the number of pregnant women, births, miscarriages, abortions, stillbirths, and other pregnancy outcomes. Findings from PIPS will illuminate the scope of the issues facing incarcerated pregnant people, and will enable policy makers, correctional administrators, researchers, and others who care about improving services for incarcerated people optimize outcomes for these women and their families.

              For more information about the PIPS project please visit www.pipsdata.org

              The conference will be held prior to the 17th Association of Justice-Involved Females and Organizations Conference (click here or copy past the following in your browser: https://www.ajfo.org/copy-of-register).
