Keeping Children Safe
Working together to keep children safe

Oregon Public Health Efforts

Our goals are to:

  • Reduce unintentional, preventable injury and death in Oregon children
  • Review child fatality cases where child abuse or suicide is suspected
  • Identify trends, make recommendations and take action on statewide issues

Oregon's Child Fatality Review

Oregon's Child Fatality Review process focuses on the subset of child deaths that are "unexpected," including unintentional injuries, intentional injuries (homicide and suicide), SIDS and unexpected deaths due to natural cause.
