New National Sudden Infant Death Resource Center

The National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health at Georgetown University is pleased to announce the new National Sudden Infant Death Resource Center (NSIDRC), funded by a 3-year cooperative agreement with the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB).

NSIDRC is co-located with the Maternal and Child Health Library and draws on the library's extensive resource capacities and public health perspective. The new NSIDRC will continue the work of the National SIDS/Infant Death Resource Center, serving as a central source of information on sudden infant death (including sudden infant death syndrome, miscarriage, stillbirth and other sudden infant deaths), on bereavement, and on promoting healthy outcomes for infants from the prenatal period through the first year of life and beyond.

The website provides access to this information in an easy-to-use format. Searchable databases and special issues of the MCH Alert with a focus on infant mortality will be available soon.

NSIDRC is also accessible by calling (866) 866-7437 (toll-free) or (202) 687-7466 (local), or by e-mailing
