Healthy Birth Outcomes:
Eliminating Racial and Ethnic Disparities
Framework for Action
A Framework for Action to Eliminate Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Birth
Outcomes discusses the impact of infant mortality and
its disparate burden among Wisconsin's racial and ethnic communities.
Three areas of emphasis are delineated:
- Build and strengthen community capacity;
- Expand access to and availability of high-quality services; and
- Improve accountability.
To accomplish these goals, we have outlined a series of strategies and
action steps for state, local, and community partners. As we develop and
work on each of these activities, we will provide periodic updates.
The Wisconsin Healthiest Women Initiative was created to promote the health of women,
building on previous efforts to improve birth outcomes, and to create this collective
Wisconsin's Statewide Framework for Improving Women's Health
(September 2013) (PDF, 784 KB). Please also visit

information on how you can help improve women's health and the health of Wisconsin's infants,
children, and families.
