They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, we need that village now. Infant mortality rates are our community’s problem, and as such, we the community need to come together to solve it.
That holds especially true as tackling the infant mortality rate comes at a time when resources are declining. State and county health departments will continue to see budget cuts. Indiana’s Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Commission is also seeing budget cuts.
That means we as a community need to lead the fight against infant mortality. We need the village to come together and get to work on a fix to save our babies.
