Central Ohio Infant Mortality/Preterm Birth Initiative
Infant mortality, the death of a baby before his/her first birthday, is a public health crisis in the central Ohio community.  Franklin County's infant mortality rate in 2011 was 9.8, with an Ohio rate of 7.9.  Ohio has the 8th worst infant mortality rate in the nation.

Through the Ohio Better Birth Outcome collaborative, central Ohio healthcare providers are working together to reduce the number of infant deaths and incidents of preterm birth through clinical interventions.  Click through the initiatives listed below to learn more about the central Ohio collaborations around reducing infant mortality.
