Butler County Partnership to Reduce Infant Mortality

Butler County Educational Service Center (BCESC) is the lead entity for the Infant Mortality Medicaid Grant in Butler County. BCESC partners with various community-based organizations in the county in efforts to reduce infant mortality within African American communities. The infant mortality rate (IMR) refers to the death of a child under the age of 1, measured by the number of deaths reported within 1,000 live births. In 2019, the infant mortality rate for non-Hispanic Black mothers in Butler County was 14.0 per 1,000 live births, almost 2 ½ times more than non-Hispanic White babies. One way we help reduce the rate of infant mortality in our county is through the work of community health workers. A community health worker (CHW) is an advocate for the African American community, pregnant women and their babies that promotes the development of healthy families through free home visiting services. Learn more about community health workers and eligibility here.
