Healthy Babies Louisville!

 

New coalition formed to improve infant healthThe rate of infant mortality is understood to reflect the health of a society and “how well a society takes care of its most vulnerable citizens.”[1]  Infant death often is tied to health conditions, health behaviors and the socioeconomic conditions that impact women before, during and after pregnancy.

Healthy Babies Louisville's goal is to ensure that ALL babies born in Louisville Metro see their first birthday and beyond. To do this, we are implementing strategies that impact women, men, and families across all stages of childbearing years. These evidence-based initiatives chosen are focused on making change at the  individual, community, and policy levels with special attention on serving our neighbors with the greatest risk in underserved areas.  

Healthy Babies Louisville works to build the following "rails" in the strategic plan linked here: 

  • Access to healthcare for adults and teens

  • Mental/behavioral wellness and substance abuse prevention and treatment

  • Father support

  • Healthy behaviors among families

In this first year, members have promised to make changes in their organization that will move the community toward healthier infants!
