Closing the Gap Summary Report

Closing the Gap was established through a contract between the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Illinois Department of Human Services to improve the racial disparities in infant mortality. As part of this initiative, EverThrive IL, formerly the Illinois Maternal and Child Health Coalition, implemented a large scale media campaign, a grassroots education campaign, and community-wide provider networks.  This report sums up the challenges, recommendations, and outcomes from this initiative.
