Leading health and philanthropic organizations outline plan to address global preterm birth burden
Friday, November 15, 2013
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the Global Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth (GAPPS), an initiative of Seattle Children’s, and the March of Dimes Foundation convened scientific experts from around the world to develop a “Solution Pathway” for preterm birth.
This strategic research plan spans the spectrum of discovery, development, and delivery research needed to both accelerate prevention and reduce preterm birth death and disability. Developed by more than 30 scientific experts in the field of preterm birth and maternal-child health, the agenda was published as a commentary online today in The Lancet Global Health.
