Infant Mortality

Infant mortality is often described as "the most important index of the health and well-being of a community and our society.” Understanding the causes of fetal, infant, and maternal death sheds critical light on the gaps in resources, policies, and healthcare that compromise the safety and survival of Indiana's most vulnerable women and children. Indiana's infant mortality rate ranks 39th nationwide.

Maternal Mortality

Nearly one quarter of maternal deaths in the state are associated with potentially preventable causes such as homicide and suicide. Collaborating on the assessment and prevention of infant and maternal deaths has always been at the core of IPN's work.
