About Us 

BXP39682sFounded in 1987, ASIP is a multidisciplinary professional membership organization whose members provide community education, training programs, and consultation for health departments, hospitals, emergency responders, medical examiners and law enforcement. The SIDS/ID professionals in ASIP (whose work addresses Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and Other Infant Death) represent a majority of the States, in many cases including the State SIDS/ID program director.


The Association of SIDS and Infant Mortality Programs (ASIP) provides national leadership to establish and promote policy and practice for professionals who respond to infant and child death and is committed to bereavement support, risk reduction and prevention services.


A premier, national association for professionals: a unified voice making a difference for families and children: building strategic partnerships and leading the response to infant and child death.

Five new Vision Priorities Teams are focusing on the priorities for ASIP and the people we serve:

  • Member Engagement
  • Funding
  • Recognition
  • Strategic Partnerships
  • Communication
