Deaths from Violence:  A Look at 17 States

The State Violent Death Reporting System Workgroup highlights the similarities and differences in the numbers, characteristics, and circumstances of deaths from violence reported in each of the 17 CDC-funded National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) states. Examples of the differences in the sources, quality, and completeness of data in each state are also described within the report. The considerable state-level heterogeneity demonstrated throughout emphasizes the need to support all states to participate in and contribute to the national database. In addition to their findings, the Workgroup describes several major recommendations that should be considered to provide a state perspective on the next steps needed to realize a fully comprehensive national reporting system on deaths from violence.

 

 

Weaving a Safety Net: Integrating Injury and Violence Prevention into Maternal and Child Health Programs

The prevention of injury and violence fits squarely within the mission of maternal and child health (MCH) programs. MCH services that already serve high-risk populations are uniquely placed to be effective conduits for injury and violence education and prevention. This publication explores how injury and violence prevention (IVP) activities can be integrated into MCH programs and services at both the state and local levels.
