Organizations interested in coordinating activities and groups involved in a community effort to reduce preterm births are being sought by the steering committee of the Fresno County Preterm Birth Collective Impact Effort.
Fresno County has one of California’s highest rates of preterm births, and the Collective Impact Effort is part of an effort, over the next 10 years, to reduce the number of babies being born too early and to improve the health of mothers. The effort is supported by the University of California, San Francisco’s Preterm Birth Initiative, which has funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates and the Marc and Lynne Benioff foundations.
Information about becoming a backbone organization for the Collective Impact Effort and how to apply can be found at the Preterm Birth Initiative website.
