Healthy Families and
Healthy Babies Committee

The Healthy Families and Healthy Babies Committee is focused on reducing infant mortality rates in Duval County. Infant mortality is a key measure of a population’s health. Significant racial and ethnic disparities in infant mortality exist. In Duval County, Black babies almost three times more likely to die before their first birthday than White babies. Committee initiatives to address this strategic priority focus on reducing infant mortality and morbidity and preventing unplanned pregnancies.
