A special supplement on preterm birth, Born Too Soon, is now available on the Reproductive Health journal website. Feauturing updating content from the original 2012 World Health Organization report "Born too soon: the global action on preterm birth", the supplement also includes an infographic with key facts and figures emerging from the data. This report contains the first-ever estimates of preterm birth rates for 184 countries, and recommended action steps to strengthen prevention and care, especially in low-income countries.
The supplement is funded by Save the Children's Saving Newborn Lives program through a grant by The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and March of Dimes, and is published in collaboration with the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health and the World Health Organization.
