Butler County Child Fatality Review 2020 Annual Report: The loss of a child has a tragic impact on families, and our community as a whole. The Child Fatality Review serves to protect the lives of Butler County children and to help every child thrive into adulthood. The Child Fatality Review Board is a group of professionals within the county who honor the memory of each child lost by working to prevent future deaths of children. We dedicate this report, with deepest sympathy, to the children who have passed and to their families.
One of the best indicators of the health of a community is its infant mortality rate. The death of a child before their first birth day is known as infant mortality. The infant mortality rate is the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. Infant mortality is often associated with factors such as maternal health, access to and quality of health care, socioeconomic conditions and health policies.
Research shows 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.
In 2013, partners from across Butler County came together to build strategies that would reduce racial disparities in infant death and improve birth outcomes. By 2014, the Partnership to Reduce Infant Mortality (PRIM) was formed.
Based on input from the community, data analysis, capacity and a review of infant mortality literature, the PRIM initiatives are focused on:
- Policy Change
- Smoking Cessation - Baby and Me Tobacco Free
- Certified Community Health Worker (CHW) workforce
- Breastfeeding Support
- Safe Sleep
- Father Involvement
- Faith-Based Support
- Community Engagement
- A partnership with Help Me Grow Central Intake to increase the number of African American women enrolled in a Home Visiting program
