The Infant Death Center (IDC), founded in 1980, is a statewide program administered through Children’s Health Alliance of Wisconsin and affiliated with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. The goal of the IDC is to ensure every Wisconsin family who experiences an unexpected infant death has access to grief support and bereavement resources. The IDC is funded through a Title V Maternal Child Health grant from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and Children’s Hospital.
