The Manitoba Advocate for Children and Youth has released her report titled Safe and Sound: A Special Report on the Unexpected Sleep-Related Deaths of 145 Manitoba Infants. The report contains 13 specific recommendations to government to increase the effectiveness and responsiveness of services for infants and their families. The report offers a message of hope: unsafe sleep-related deaths can be reduced in our province by addressing the known risk factors. Improved public education, equal access to safe sleep resources, and improved professional training will contribute to reducing infant deaths.
