The Lancet Series Shows More Progress Needed To Lower Global Stillbirth Rate

The Guardian: World making barely any progress on preventing stillbirths, says Lancet
“…In a series of papers on ending preventable stillbirths, published in The Lancet this week, researchers from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), found the number of stillbirths had remain unchanged since 2011 and was still unacceptably high. The average stillbirth rate had fallen from 24.7 per 1,000 total births to 18.4 between 2000 and 2015, but was still way above the World Health Assembly (WHA)-endorsed target of 12 or fewer in all countries by 2030…” (Ford, 1/18).
