Sedgwick County has a community health problem that is affecting it's
smallest, most vulnerable residents - high infant mortality rates. The overall
rate of infant death in Sedgwick County is 7.4 per 1,000 live births and a
staggering 18.8 in every 1,000 live black infant births. The Sedgwick
County Health Department program is taking a community approach to understanding
and addressing this important public health indicator.
Project Imprint is a community initiative involving multiple disciplines,
organizations and individuals seeking answers as to why infants are dying in our
county. Based on data review and interviews with parents who have experienced a
loss, Project Imprint makes recommendations that may result in increased
knowledge about the issue, changes to service delivery and policy change.
