Healthy Birth Outcomes:
Eliminating Racial and Ethnic Disparities
Project Overview

Although Wisconsin is a leader in its low infant mortality rate for white infants, we need to strengthen our efforts to assure the best outcomes for all mothers and babies in the state.  The Department of Health Services is implementing a multi-year action plan to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in birth outcomes.
