Since 2009, Stillbirth Foundation supporters have funded more than $1,000,000 in 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. Every day six babies will die in their mother’s womb and be stillborn – a little-known and tragic 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.
