Children's Safety Now Alliance

Children's Safety Now Alliance

CSN, in partnership with HRSA MCHB, facilitates the Children's Safety Now Alliance with participation by leaders and experts representing national organizations, federal agencies, state health departments, hospitals, and universities. The purpose of the Alliance is to reduce fatal and serious injuries among infants, children, and adolescents. The Alliance is guided by a Steering Committee which works to create new synergy among public and private stakeholders and to support the activities of the Child Safety Learning Collaborative. The Steering Committee provides advice to the Learning Collaborative and helps to communicate the lessons and accomplishments of the Learning Collaborative to a broad national audience that includes public health professionals, policymakers, funders, and families.
