The Children’s Safety Network works with state and jurisdiction Maternal & Child Health and Injury & Violence prevention programs to create an environment in which all infants, children, and youth are safe and healthy. Our goal is to equip states and jurisdictions to strengthen their capacity, utilize data and implement effective strategies to make reductions in injury-related deaths, hospitalizations, and emergency department visits.
What we do
- The Children’s Safety Network, in cooperation with the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) is implementing a child safety learning collaborative for state and jurisdiction health departments.
- In partnership with HRSA MCHB, CSN facilitates a national Children’s Safety Now Alliance, with participation by leaders and experts representing national organizations, federal agencies, universities, and states with a commitment to child safety. The Alliance is guided by a Steering Committee, which works to create new synergy among public and private stakeholders and to support the activities of the CS CoIIN strategy teams.
- CSN provides training and technical assistance and resources on injury and violence prevention planning, programs, and evidence-based practices to state and jurisdiction health departments and health and safety services and systems.
