Global Community Must Address Stillbirths In Development Goals

The Guardian: Time to target the shocking neglect of stillbirths
Sarah Boseley, health editor at The Guardian

“…Every year 2.6 million babies are stillborn. But, says [Joy Lawn, professor of maternal, reproductive and child health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine], these babies, whose loss is a tragedy for their parents, are forgotten by everybody else. And it does not look as though they will be remembered in the post-2015 global targets that will follow on from the Millennium Development Goals…” (5/21).
