Infant Mortality in North Carolina: An Inventory of Programs with Recommendations

Published January 1, 1991


The NCIOM, in coordination with Arthur C. Christakos, MD, compiled an inventory of programs designed to reduce infant mortality in North Carolina and made recommendations, specifically in the area of education, that could conceivably improve infant mortality rates in the state. This report describes that inventory, presents a comparison of mortality rates in North Carolina’s counties, and recommends educational efforts that may have some positive effect on infant mortality rates throughout the state.
