Our Mission

OBBO’s Mission:
Reduce the infant mortality rate in Franklin County by improving the delivery of health services for low-income women and their families using quality improvement science to guide our work.

OBBO has been identified as a lead partner, working with CelebrateOne, to reduce the infant mortality rate and cut the racial health disparity gap in this community.  CelebrateOne is Greater Columbus’ community-wide initiative to improve the health of babies. The goal is to assure that all babies survive and thrive well past their first birthdays.  The initiative is implementing the recommendations of the Greater Columbus Infant Mortality Task Force established to address our community’s alarmingly high infant mortality rate.
