Title of Collaborative Activity:

Safe to Sleep

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Safe to SleepĀ® campaign seeks to educate parents and caregivers about ways to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep-related causes of infant death, such as accidental suffocation. The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) offers print and electronic materials, media resources, toolkits, and a continuing education program for nurses to help spread the word about safe infant sleep. The Safe to SleepĀ® campaign partners with organizations to help reach various audiences, including African American, and American Indian/Alaska Native communities, which have the highest SIDS rates of any racial/ethnic group in the United States.
