Press release: Stillbirths - The invisible public health problem
Call for action
Authors of The Lancet’s Stillbirths Series call for action to reach these goals by 2020:
- For countries with a stillbirth rate of more than 5 per 1,000 births, at least a 50 percent reduction from the current rate;
- For those nations with a current rate of under 5 per 1,000, to eliminate all preventable stillbirths and close equity gaps.
