Commission On Infant Mortality

About The Commission

The Ohio Commission on Infant Mortality (ORC 3701.68) was created in 2014 with the goal of improving Ohio's infant mortality rate to help more Ohio babies celebrate their first birthdays. At the time the commission was created, Ohio ranked 46th in the nation for overall infant mortality and 50th for black babies. Infant mortality is defined as the death of a live-born baby before his or her first birthday.
