The purpose of this program is to reduce overall rates of SUID and reduce racial and ethnic disparities in SUID by supporting pediatric health care practitioners to provide evidence-based counseling and education to infant caregivers and families; to guide system improvements; and to identify and support policy changes that address state and community-specific SUID risks.

The goals of the SUID Prevention Program are to:

  • Identify and promote state and community best practices in safe infant sleep and SUID prevention through a national coalition with broad representation of pediatric providers, social service providers, fatality review leaders, community organizations that represent those at highest risk for SUID, and families who have experienced a SUID;
  • Increase pediatric providers’ awareness, understanding, and use of fetal/infant mortality review (FIMR) and child death review (CDR) team data, findings, and recommendations that describe state- and community-specific causes of SUID and how these relate to infant caregiver/family practices, health and social services systems, and local policies; and
  • Engage pediatric providers in assisting infant caregivers/families to create a safe sleep environment through assessments for SUID risk and protective factors, counseling and education, working as a member of a FIMR or CDR team and associated community action teams and advisory boards to address social service system improvements, and initiate local policy changes to better address community-specific SUID risks.
