BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:

The Mecklenburg County Community Child Fatality Prevention and Protection Team (CFPPT) is a statutorily mandated (§7B-1400), multi-disciplinary, community team composed of representatives from public/private agencies and organizations serving children. Its mission is to identify gaps and deficiencies in the local, comprehensive child services system and advocate for prevention efforts and policy change in a coordinated manner. This team works collaboratively to raise awareness and provide recommendations for policy change around systems issues to better protect infants and children from injury and death. This report summarizes trends around the major issues increasing the risk of death for children in our community. These trends highlight the need for continued support from local government and the community to improve the safety and well-being of infants and children and prevent future fatalities. The CFPPT uses this data as a tool to make systems recommendations to prevent future fatalities among infants and children in Mecklenburg County.
