Since 2009, the Stillbirth Foundation Australia has granted over $1.000.000 to research studies. Every year, we continue to dedicate ourselves to raising as much money as we can for the purposes of funding the very best research studies – as determined by the rigorous guidelines set by our Scientific Assessment Committee.
The Stillbirth Foundation Australia is pleased to be able to support much-needed research into the causes of stillbirth and thanks those researchers who are committed to ensuring that the stillbirth rate starts to decline in Australia. With 6 babies bring 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.
