About the Resource Center

The FIMR/HIV Prevention Methodology was created collaboratively by CityMatCH, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (the College), and the National Fetal and Infant Mortality Review Program (NFIMR).


CityMatCH, based at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, developed and maintains the FIMR/HIV National Resource Center, with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


CityMatCH is a national organization representing maternal and child health (MCH) programs and leaders in local health departments across the country. The mission of CityMatCH is to improve the health and well-being of urban women, children and families by strengthening the public health organizations and leaders in their communities.



The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (CDC-NCHHSTP) is responsible for public health surveillance, prevention research, and programs to prevent and control HIV infection, AIDS, other sexually transmitted diseases, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis.


The Pediatric AIDS Chicago Prevention Initiative (PACPI) is a collaborative enterprise that brings together public and private institutions and community-based organizations into a coordinated continuum of primary and secondary prevention and care to achieve our goal-the elimination of pediatric AIDS in Illinois.


The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (the College) is a specialty membership organization dedicated to the advancement of women's health through education, practice, research, and advocacy.


The National Fetal and Infant Mortality Review Program (NFIMR), housed at the College, is a 17-year collaboration between the College and the Health Resources and Services Administration's Maternal and Child Health Bureau (HRSA, MCHB). The program provides technical assistance in all aspects of developing and carrying out FIMR programs.


The Resource Center staff provides technical assistance and training to communities currently implementing or interested in implementing the FIMR/HIV Prevention Methodology. Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions or need assistance!
