Partnership to Eliminate Disparities in Infant Mortality (PEDIM)

The Partnership to Eliminate Disparities in Infant Mortality (PEDIM) was created by CityMatCH, the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP), and the National Healthy Start Association (NHSA), with funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. This partnership aims at decreasing racial disparities in infant mortality in U.S. urban areas. PEDIM has launched two Action Learning Collaboratives (ALC), intensive training programs that bring diverse state, local and community agencies and programs together to tackle priority issues, promote collaboration and improve programs, policies and public health systems. Both ALCs address the need for maternal and child health leaders to: learn what has worked across the country from both their peers and subject matter experts; discuss how to tailor interventions for community, local and state practice; and, become part of a larger learning community linked to other efforts to undo racism and promote health equity.
