  • These findings suggest that a low-cost instructional regimen for birth attendants can be effective in reducing stillbirths in parts of the world where most births are not attended by a physician," said Alan E. Guttmacher, M.D., acting director of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the NIH institute, that, along with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, funded the study.

  • Before data collection on births began, research staff taught local health care workers how to collect data, assess infant health, and diagnose stillbirth and other conditions. (redorbit.com)
  • Stillbirths among births attended by midwives and traditional birth attendants declined to nearly the same levels seen among births attended by physicians. (redorbit.com)
  • In the United States for every 167 births there is one stillbirth. (wikipedia.org)
  • health
  • As the breadth of their uncertainty range demonstrates, the researchers encountered great difficulty in compiling their statistics, leading them to suggest that health issues surrounding stillbirths do not receive enough attention from the world at large. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • The rate of stillbirths in rural areas of six developing countries fell more than 30 percent following a basic training program in newborn care for birth attendants, according to a study funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. (redorbit.com)
  • Worldwide prevention of most stillbirths is possible with improved health systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • GAPPS' mission is to lead a collaborative, global effort to increase awareness and accelerate innovative research and interventions that will improve maternal, newborn and child health outcomes around the world, with a focus on preterm birth and stillbirth. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • Many infections borne by animals and vectors cause stillbirths, and these types of infections occur frequently in low-income countries. (rti.org)
  • Many stillbirths occur at full term to apparently healthy mothers, and a postmortem evaluation reveals a cause of death in about 40% of autopsied cases. (wikipedia.org)
  • data
  • Our estimates suggest that 3.2 million babies are born dead every year, and the true figure is probably higher given the limitations of the available data and the fact that stillbirths are under-reported better counting is not just for better epidemiology. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • large
  • Malaria, because of its high prevalence and extensive placental damage, accounts for large numbers of stillbirths. (rti.org)
  • Global
  • The Global Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth (GAPPS) was founded in 2007 as an initiative of Seattle Children's. (wikipedia.org)
