The National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention is the national resource and data center for Fetal and Infant Mortality Review and Child Death Review.
The Center has four major objectives:
- Provide leadership, training and technical support to the CDR and FIMR programs.
- Manage a National Case Reporting System that will promote high quality FIMR and CDR data collection, analysis and dissemination to local, state and national audiences.
- Promote coordination among review processes.
- Build partnerships at the state and local level to move CDR and FIMR review findings into recommendations and actions that will improve agency systems and prevent deaths and serious injuries.
There are more than 1,350 Child Death Review Teams in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and the Navajo Nation. There are 173 Fetal and Infant Mortality Review Teams in 29 states. There are also programs in other countries.
