New CDC Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID)

Fact Sheet Now Available

SUID factsheet

About 3,500 babies died suddenly and unexpectedly in 2013. A new fact sheet  from CDC’s Division of Reproductive Health describes sudden unexpected infant death (SUID) and CDC’s SUID Case Registry.

The SUID Case Registry is a population-based, multistate surveillance system developed in partnership with the National Center for the Review and Prevention of Child Death. CDC provides technical assistance and resources to state grantees that allow for increased staff and ability to conduct surveillance. CDC and state grantees use the SUID Case Registry surveillance data to monitor trends and to develop targeted strategies to reduce risk of SUID, such as safe sleep education and promotion. The fact sheet is available online.

Learn more about SUID and SIDS on the CDC Web site.
