Helping Butler County babies survive and thrive through education, advocacy, collaboration, and action.
The Butler County Partnership to Reduce Infant Mortality (PRIM) works to help Butler County babies and their families to survive and thrive through education, advocacy, collaboration, and action.
Community partners are working together to analyze and address the factors that play a role in high mortality rates in our community. The analysis showed that lower income families are impacted more often by infant deaths of all causes, and that rates are higher for African American and Hispanic families. Most often infant deaths in our county are due to three things: prematurity, lack of prenatal care, and sleep related deaths. We are also looking at the social determinants of health that impact this issue. Complicated issues need a collaborative, community-wide response. Will you join us in the fight against infant mortality?
If you are interested in assisting with this effort or want to learn more about our plan to reduce infant mortality, visit the Butler County Health District’s PRIM website here or call Kathryn Yang, PRIM Project Manager at 513-887-3808.
