National, regional, and worldwide estimates of stillbirth rates in 2015, with trends from 2000: a systematic analysis

18/01/2016 | Lancet Global Health

India reported the maximum number of still births at 5,92,000 followed by Nigeria (3,14,000) Pakistan (2,43,000), China (1,22,000), Bangladesh (83,000) According to this new research published in Lancet.  

Previous estimates have highlighted a large global burden of stillbirths, with an absence of reliable data from regions where most stillbirths occur. The Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) targets national stillbirth rates (SBRs) of 12 or fewer stillbirths per 1000 births by 2030. We estimate SBRs and numbers for 195 countries, including trends from 2000 to 2015.
