Child death review teams (CDRTs) focus on the prevention of child deaths, but a comprehensive understanding of their activities is lacking. This exploratory study addressed this gap through a qualitative analysis of reported CDRT activities using the “spectrum of prevention” framework. We collected state-level CDRT reports published 2006–2015, recorded their activities (n = 193), and coded them using the “spectrum of prevention” framework. The highest percentage (64.2%) of activities was categorized under “fostering coalitions and networks.” We recommend that CDRTs increase their reporting of activities so others can better understand their potential impact on preventing child deaths.
