Reducing infant mortality is a top cross-agency priority in many states. It is a significant issue that often disproportionately affects communities of color and is amenable to policy and prevention strategies. This session will explore innovative state policies and programs to reduce infant mortality, including pay-for-performance financing, preconception and prenatal care, and public education campaigns targeting relevant social factors. Colorado, Indiana, and South Carolina will share their strategies and critical partnerships, including successes, challenges and lessons, to ensure children have their best chance at a long and healthy life.
Supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under the Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN) to Reduce Infant Mortality
