Child Fatality Review Virtual Meeting
Thursday, Feb. 29, 1 p.m.

The Child Fatality Prevention Act establishes the Colorado Child Fatality Prevention System (CFPS), a statewide, multidisciplinary, multi-agency effort to prevent child deaths. CFPS is housed at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) in the Violence and Injury Prevention - Mental Health Promotion Branch of the Prevention Services Division. The CFPS is based on a public health approach to the prevention of injury and violence-related fatalities of children ages 0-17 that occur in the state of Colorado.

Through individual case-specific reviews of these deaths, specific risk and protective factors are identified that can be mitigated or enhanced through best practices and evidence-based interventions to prevent infant, child, and youth deaths. State and local partners implement and evaluate these interventions to prevent future fatalities from occurring in Colorado.
