The Lancet 2011 Stillbirths series



The Lancet Medical Journal published the Lancet’s Stillbirth Series on Thursday 14th April 2011. Simultaneous launches were held in London, New York, and Hobart in partnership with the Lancet, the International Stillbirth Alliance and its member organisations, World Health Organisation, Save the Children, UNICEF and UNFPA.  Funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, this series aims to prioritize stillbirth in the context of maternal, child and newborn survival with the overall goal of bringing together epidemiology, evidence for interventions, costing estimates and policy analysis to guide decision making and promote action with measurable change by 2020.
