    • Abstract:
      Purpose To provide recommendations for improving rates of infant mortality in a U.S. southeastern city using a collective impact approach. Description A convening organization and its academic partner devised a systematic process involving national experts and local stakeholders. Assessment A panel of infant mortality experts reached consensus on eight recommendations and three key overarching principles. Local stakeholder groups advanced four recommendations, of which three aligned closely with expert panel recommendations: (1) increasing access to, and use of 17-alpha hydroxyprogesterone caproate (17P); (2) reshaping housing policy using a health lens, and (3) supporting pre-conception health, intra-conception health and family planning. Conclusion The dynamic process of recommendation development occurred within a larger collective impact framework and can be used to shape a community-based approach to infant mortality. Other communities interested in improving rates of infant mortality or tackling other challenging public health issues could engage in a similar process.
