Infant Mortality Advisory Council Meetings (IMAC)


To create an environment in which every Michigan baby is born healthy and ready to thrive in a safe and nurturing family within local communities and systems that promote equity.



Improve infant health outcomes and eliminate disparity in infant mortality by mobilizing public and private partners to address social determinants of health, promote evidence-based practices, and improve systems of care for women of childbearing age, infants, and families.



The Infant Mortality Advisory Council's purpose is to support the development and implementation of Michigan's Infant Mortality Reduction Plan (IMRP). The Advisory Council pursues a shared vision and mission across the sectors and systems represented on the Council, and it exists to advise, assist, and promote statewide collaborative improvement efforts to reduce infant mortality.
