Experts call for acceleration of research and interventions for prematurity and stillbirth

nd fetal origins of adult disease, both acute and chronic. The GAPPS data and samples will be available to researchers worldwide.

Global Action Agenda

The BMC report outlines the first-ever comprehensive review on preterm births and stillbirths. It also includes a Global Action Agenda that was developed by more than 200 stakeholders at the 2009 International Conference on Prematurity and Stillbirth. Global leaders outlined collaborative strategies to achieve four key goals:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of the magnitude of the problem
    Global health leaders typically are unaware of the magnitude of the health problems caused by preterm birth and stillbirth, and their relationships to maternal, child and adult health. Other global health leaders have been aware of the problem, but have not known what to do.

  • Close the research gaps
    The biology of pregnancy and childbirth is poorly understood, as are the causes of preterm birth and stillbirth. Additionally, it is difficult to calculate the magnitude of the problem as there are no global standards for data collection.

  • Support the discovery, development and delivery of interventions
    More research is needed to determine which interventions are most effective. Effective interventions that are already available in low-resource settings should be promoted for scale-up. Effective interventions that are only available in high-income countries should be adapted and evaluated for effectiveness in low-resource settings.

  • Increase resources for research and implementation
    Significant funding, commitment and a coordinated effort are needed to reduce preterm births and stillbirth.

"This call to action presents a unique opportunity to move the prematurity and stillbirth agenda forward," said Dr. Rubens. "GAPPS is forging a collaborative effort toward achieving common goals
