Infant Mortality Program

In May 2005, the Governor’s Infant Mortality Task Force (IMTF) issued a report on Delaware’s high infant mortality rate. The report included twenty (20) recommendations to reduce the number of Delaware babies who die before their first birthday, and eliminate the racial disparity in the rate at which these babies die. The report also concluded that healthy women have healthy babies.

The Delaware Healthy Mother and Infant Consortium (DHMIC) was estabished as a successor to the IMTF to advocate for, and oversee, the implementation of the recommendations of the Task Force.
