Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) Case Registry

The Alliance is the Wisconsin grantee for the SUID Case Registry. A SUID is defined as the sudden and unexpected death of a baby less than one year old, that does not seem to have a specific cause before investigation. The SUID Case Registry allows Wisconsin to perform SUID surveillance by having local teams review the cases that occur in their counties and enter their data.
