Perinatal Periods of Risk: Understanding the Causes of Infant and Fetal Deaths in Denver
The death of an infant or loss of a developing baby is always devastating. Across the United States,
black women are significantly more likely than whites to experience the loss of a baby within the first year of life.
This is also true in Denver where the ratio of black infant deaths to white infant deaths is two to one.
Denver Public Health is diligently working with community partners to eliminate this disparity, first by better
understanding why this difference occurs. The Perinatal Periods of Risk (PPOR) Analysis is a specific technique used to
investigate factors associated with both infant deaths (after a live birth) and fetal losses (miscarriages). For more information about our research,
read the full perinatal periods of risk analysis, which includes the next steps in how we plan to engage community members in our work.
