Rhe American Guild for Infant Survival, and its military affiliate, the American Forces Guild, has been at the leading edge of the challenge of reducing infant mortality from SIDS and other causes. They are the ones that got the home infant monitoring program for high-risk infants going across the USA and around the world. They developed a screening test that spots "nornal" infants who are actually at high risk of SIDS and other illnesses which greatly American infant death rates from all causes.They were the ones who started the campaign to get servicemens group life insurance coverage for military FAMILIES, not just the service members. In addition, they have been holding monthly meetings for families who have lost children to SIDS and other causes. They do not charge for their services, and have never taken a penny of government or United Way money, depending on their own fund-raising efforts. This organization is awesome!
