The primary purpose of the Idaho Perinatal Project is to reduce maternal and infant morbidity and mortality and to improve pregnancy outcomes throughout the state of Idaho.

Our goals include the creation of a database for maternal/child outcomes; correlate, analyze, and make recommendations regarding maternal/child statistical data for the state of Idaho; provide education to perinatal health care professionals and the general public; and become a main resource and advocate in maternal/infant health.
