Stillbirth Foundation Australia funded research investigates viral causes of stillbirth and potential preventative treatments - December 2012
With 6 babies being delivered stillborn every day in Australia, tragically stillbirth remains a significant public health issue. A huge amount of investment is needed in vital research to understand why such large numbers of babies are dying; particularly those that are born at or close to term with no known cause of death. In 2013, the Stillbirth Foundation Australia is excited to be funding the following projects:
"Maternal ethnicity and disparties in stillbirth"
Chief Investigator: Dr Miranda Davies-Tuck
It is very exciting that Stillbirth Foundation Australia funded research, the Sydney Stillbirth Study led by Dr Adrienne Gordon, has revealed findings about the causes of stillbirth which add to our understanding of the causes of late stillbirth. Stillbirth is a massive public health issue, with six babies delivered stillborn everyday in Australia, and given that the majority of unexplained stillbirth occurs in late pregnancy this study was important in investigating why these deaths are occuring.
