OBJECTIVES: The aim of this paper is to explore the involvement of state Title V programs in fetal and infant mortality review (FIMR) programs. METHODS: On the basis of information from four data sources, this article explores interactions among state Title V and FIMR programs, and considers recommendations regarding how these connections can be fostered for their mutual benefit. RESULTS: A brief history of state Title V engagement with FIMR programs is reviewed. Examples of state Title V-FIMR interactions are provided as suggestions for consideration by other states. CONCLUSIONS: Fetal and infant mortality review programs are, by design, local interventions, but there are many instances in which state Title V agencies can play roles in individual local, regional, or statewide FIMRs.
