The main goal of the Community and Research Information for Healthy Births (CRIHB) is to offer a "one stop shop" for accessing data about factors that affect Milwaukee and Wisconsin infant health outcomes.
Using a population health framework, we go beyond the "typical" data sources to explore the broad social determinants of health and how they affect a baby's well-being. We hope that this website will inform healthcare organizations, academic institutions, governmental, and community-based organizations that seek to improve birth outcomes for all races in Milwaukee.

The African American Breastfeeding Network of Milwaukee (AABN) was established in 2008 to address breastfeeding
disparities by increasing awareness of the benefits and value of mother’s milk, building community allies, and de-normalizing formula use. AABN’s mission is to promote breastfeeding as the natural and the best way to provide optimal nourishment tor babies and young children.
AABN is a proud program member of Milwaukee Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families (Milwaukee LIHF), a community-wide collaborative, led by United Way of Greater Milwaukee. Milwaukee LIHF is working to eliminate racial disparities in birth outcomes and ensure more babies reach their first birthday.
