What is the Prematurity Prevetion Initiative

Who Do We Serve?

The Prematurity Prevention Initiative (PPI) is a program of Family Health Initiatives, a subsidiary agency of the Southern NJ Perinatal Cooperative. PPI leverages statewide partnerships with the Partnership of Maternal and Child Health of Northern New Jersey and Central Jersey Family Health Consortium

PPI engages all with a role in preterm prevention. From those who are pregnant and their support network to the community at large and the system of health care and social service providers.  


PPI is inclusive, serving all races, ethnicities, sexual/gender identities, income levels and insurance status, including uninsured and under-insured.


While all embracing, PPI focuses special attention on African American birthing individuals at greatest risk of premature birth within New Jersey.
