New Haven Healthy Start (NHHS)

NHHS is a federally-funded urban health initiative that focuses on infant mortality and the elimination of racial and ethnic disparities in birth outcomes. It is supported by the federal grant (H49MC00095) from the Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Division of Perinatal Health Systems. The Black infant mortality in New Haven is 2.5 times the rate of White infants, paralleling that of the US. By targeting the leading causes of infant mortality, low birth weight and prematurity/pre-term birth, NHHS has been successful in addressing infant mortality for more than a decade.
