Occurrence of SIDS has been declining for 4 generations due to SIDS research, and awareness. In 1999, the US National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) launched the “Back to Sleep” Campaign that led to a 45% decrease of SIDS. This is just one example of how research can save young lives.
