The Child Fatality Review Committee (CFRC) was created by Executive Order in 1991. The mission of the Committee is to reduce preventable child fatalities through systemic multidisciplinary review of child fatalities in New Hampshire; through multidisciplinary training and community based prevention education; and through data-driven recommendations for legislation and public policy.
The Committee membership is comprised of representation from the medical, law enforcement, judicial, legal, victim services, public health, mental health, child protection and education communities. The Committee began reviewing cases of child fatalities in January of 1996. After each review the Committee identifies risk factors related to the death and makes recommendations aimed at improving systematic responses in an effort to prevent similar deaths in the future. The Committee provides the recommendations to the participating agencies and asks them to take actions consistent with their own mandates. The Committee publishes the recommendation and the agency responses to those recommendations in an Annual Report.
