The Brooklyn Task Force on Infant and Maternal Mortality and Family Health also known as The Brooklyn Infant Mortality Reduction Initiative (BIMRI), a coalition of Community-Based Organizations (CBO) was formed in 2000 to provide a forum to engage community-based health and human service providers and other community stakeholders, in partnerships and collaborative activities that address the disparities in maternal health and birth outcomes in communities of color. The Task Force’s prime goal is to bring about improvement in the infant mortality rate by linking people to available services they need to promote health and to prevent infant/maternal mortality.
