Reaching More First Birthdays!

PRIM


Our Vision:
To inspire change & empower families so all babies reach their 1st birthday… and beyond! 

Our Mission: 
Helping Butler County babies survive and thrive through education, advocacy, collaboration, and action.

 
The Butler County Partnership to Reduce Infant Mortality (PRIM), a group of over 100 community partners, met to analyze data related to infant deaths in our county in order to understand what factors play a role in our high level of infant mortality. The analysis showed that lower income families are impacted more often by infant deaths of all causes, and that black and Hispanic families are impacted more often than white families. Most often infant deaths in our county are due to three things: prematurity, lack of prenatal care, and sleep related deaths. These are all complicated issues.

The Butler County Partnership to Reduce Infant Mortality met around the community in 8 specific Work Teams. These were:

  • Smoking Cessation
  • Centering Pregnancy
  • Safe Sleep
  • Breast Feeding Support
  • Teen Pregnancy Reduction
  • Father Involvement
  • Faith-Based Support
  • Leadership Team

 Based on community input, on what the research says about the factors impacting infant mortality and prematurity, and on our current capabilities/resources, we have chosen two projects to be implemented and measured over several years: a county-wide smoking cessation program, and a Centering Pregnancy program.

Additionally, we will be conducting a campaign to educate about safe sleep practices and will distribute cribs to those who need them. All of these programs have the potential to impact Butler County infants and their families in a multitude of positive ways. We hope that you will join us!

If you are interested in finding out more or assisting with this effort, please call Kathryn Yang, 513-887-3808 or Gold-Marie Wontumi, 513-8875227, Co-Leads of PRIM.
