dc.description.abstractVariation in stillbirth rates across high-income countries (HIC) and large equity gaps within HIC persist. If all HIC achieved stillbirth rates equal to the best performing countries, 19,439 late gestation stillbirths could have been avoided in 2015. Unexplained stillbirths remain high and can be addressed through improvements in data collection, investigation and classification, and better understanding of causal pathways. Substandard care contributes to 20-30% of all stillbirths, and the contribution is even higher for late-gestation intrapartum stillbirths. National perinatal mortality audit programmes need to be implemented across all HIC. Reducing stigma and fatalism around stillbirth and improving bereavement care are also clear, ongoing priorities for action. In HIC, a child has twice the risk of being stillborn due to adverse socioeconomic circumstances. Community- and country-level programs to improve health among disadvantaged families are needed to address these inequities.
