Child Fatality Surveillance and Prevention

Child Fatality Surveillance and Prevention

Centers:

MPHI’s Center for Child and Family Health (CCFH) houses the Michigan Child Death Review, Sudden Unexpected Infant Death Case Registry, and Fetal and Infant Mortality Review. Collectively, these projects utilize fatality surveillance to better understand how and why children die, and use the findings to help prevent child deaths. CCFH provides technical assistance to facilitate these efforts with both local- and state-level policy makers. In addition, CCFH staff train front-line personnel across the state on effective review processes, infant safe sleep and death scene investigation practices.
