Racine Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families
The Wisconsin Partnership Program of the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health financially supports implementation activities of Racine Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families (LIHF), a project of the Greater Racine Collaborative for Healthy Birth Outcomes (GRC4HBO) to find out why the African American infant mortality rates are higher in certain areas in Southeastern Wisconsin.
The Racine Lifecourse Initiatives for Healthy Families project is a community-wide effort to close the black-white gap in birth outcomes in Racine. The Lifecourse Perspective teaches that what happens during the life of an African American woman has an impact on her baby while she is pregnant.
The Racine LIHF Community Action Plan provides guidance on the programs that will help reduce the African American infant mortality rate.
