The National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep (NAPPSS)

The National Action Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep (NAPPSS) is a coalition of over 50 advocacy organizations, professional associations, faith communities, business groups, and federal partners including NFIMR, the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and the National Institute for Child Health and Human Development's Safe to Sleep® public education campaign. NAPPSS was launched by the National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health at Georgetown University in collaboration with the National Center for Cultural Competence, First Candle, and Tomorrow's Child and is funded by MCHB.

The partnership will develop and implement an action plan to make safe infant sleep a national norm. The NAPPSS project marks a new opportunity to safeguard the lives of infants at a time when understanding and reducing the risks of sleep-related infant deaths is advancing on multiple fronts. More information is available here
