National SIDS & Infant Death Program Support Center



Priority Area:

Policy and Administration

The Policy and Administration team has reviewed and update the strategic work plan and the composition of the Advisory Committee and work teams. This team will facilitate an Advisory Committee process of composing a position statement on the Center’s scope of work relevant to infant deaths other than SIDS. The team is also reviewing existing and pending state legislation involving SIDS scene investigation, diagnosis, and support services. They will examine how state and federal health care programs (managed care, CHIP, welfare reforms, etc.) effect the incidence of infant death and the provision of risk reduction and bereavement services.
