Project Imprint

A Fetal Infant Mortality Review Project

Project ImprintSedgwick County has a community health problem that is affecting it's smallest, most vulnerable residents - high infant mortality rates. The overall rate of infant death in Sedgwick County is 7.4 per 1,000 live births and a staggering 18.8 in every 1,000 live black infant births. The Sedgwick County Health Department program is taking a community approach to understanding and addressing this important public health indicator.

Project Imprint is a community initiative involving multiple disciplines, organizations and individuals seeking answers as to why infants are dying in our county. Based on data review and interviews with parents who have experienced a loss, Project Imprint makes recommendations that may result in increased knowledge about the issue, changes to service delivery and policy change.
