The Child and Youth Mortality Review Committee (CYMRC) was established to review deaths of children and young people aged 28 days to 24 years. Our aim is to find ways to prevent such deaths in the future. This site provides information on the Committee and our work, as well as resources for health professionals, parents and families.
