The National Stillbirth Action and Implementation Plan recognises stillbirth as a public health issue. We developed it in response to a recommendation of the Senate Select Committee on Stillbirth Research and Education Report.
The plan includes short, medium and long-term actions that aim to reduce stillbirth and ensure families affected by stillbirth receive respectful and supportive care. It recognises that some groups have higher rates of stillbirth and includes actions to address these equity gaps.
We consulted extensively with relevant groups while developing the plan, including bereaved parents, state and territory governments, researchers, clinical experts and non-government organisations.
