Addressing disparities in stillbirth

Australia is one of the safest places in the world to give birth and yet not all women experience the same excellent pregnancy outcomes. Currently there are large disparities that exist regarding who experiences stillbirth with women from some migrant backgrounds experiencing stillbirth at up to twice the rate of locally born women. The drivers of these increased stillbirth rates are multifactorial and require a number of strategies to address them. There are a range of projects on offer - these include population-based and clinical epidemiology studies, implemention studies, clinical trials and evidence synthesis (e.g. systematic reviews and meta-analysis) that seek to address the disparities that currently exist in care and outcomes for migrant women to improve maternity care in the future. We would love you to join us in working to achieve this.
