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, has been meeting for nearly a year analyzing 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 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.
