ISA is a global network spanning all continents and with members in 38 countries. We work through collaborations with like-minded organizations and networks by contributing our expertise for the benefit of a shared objective, project, or mission.
- ISA has collaborated with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), US Agency for International Development (USAID) to develop the Global Guide for Stillbirth Advocacy and Implementation.
- The Align MNH movement: ISA will have a strong presence at the first Align MNH event, IMNHC 2023 in Cape town in May 2023. ISA will take steps to implement both the PVI toolkits in developing country settings, and will launch the ‘Global Guide for Stillbirth Advocacy and Implementation’.
- The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (PMNCH): ISA partners with PMNCH to raise awareness about stillbirth. In 2022, PMNCH funded the Parents Voice Initiative (PVI) to develop the Health Provider Advocacy toolkit and Parent Advocacy toolkit and the online registry of parent support organizations.
- World Health Organization South-East Asia Regional Office (WHO SEARO): provided additional funding to complete the Health Provider Advocacy toolkit.
- The Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) initiative: ISA is an active member of the ENAP partnership and ensures that stillbirth is appropriately integrated into the maternal and newborn continuum of care approach.
- The Health Newborn Network (HNN): ISA works with the HNN community to ensure that stillbirth is included in the newborn care agenda. HNN hosts a series of blogs by ISA about stillbirth.
- The International Society for the Study and Prevention of Perinatal and Infant Death (ISPID) is a not-for-profit organization that is leading the world in discovering evidence-based preventive measures for stillbirth and sudden infant death. Until 2021, every second year the ISA and ISPID held an international conference together.
We believe in collaborations to create a cohesive action based on valuable insights to address stillbirth prevention. If you would like to collaborate with ISA, please join us or contact us at email@example.com.
