The Mission

The Governor's Task Force on Children at Risk is working diligently to establish a statewide Child Death Review Team to allow comprehensive and multidisciplinary review of deaths of children younger than 18 years-old, in order to identify what information and education may improve the health and safety of Idaho's children.  This professional team will be demographically diverse and will meet on a quarterly basis and/ or as needed when cases arise.

 

Each year the Idaho Child Fatality Review Team presents its annual report on child deaths
occurring in Idaho. The team was formed by the Governor’s Task Force on Children at Risk,
under Executive Order 2012-03 to review deaths to children under the age of 18, using a
comprehensive and multidisciplinary process. The team is tasked with identifying information
and education that is needed to improve the health and safety of Idaho’s children. Their goal is
to identify common links or circumstances in these deaths that may be addressed to prevent
similar tragedies in the future.
