International Stillbirth Alliance Conference

  • 12 Feb 2024

The 19th Annual Conference of the International Stillbirth Alliance - 3 - 6th November 2024

Stillbirths have been ignored for a long time even at global level and countries often do not have processes to count or prevent them. It is important for countries to adopt a differential approach to further reduce stillbirths based on their contextual priorities, available resources, the global evidence and best practices.

The annual ISA conference started with the aim to put stillbirths on the agenda globally and regionally, and to show that action must be taken locally. The first annual ISA conference was held in 2005, and ISA ran joint congress with the International Society for Study and Prevention of Perinatal and Infant Death (ISPID) biannually between 2010 and 2021.  Thus far, 18 annual ISA conferences have taken place in countries covering every continent.  The annual ISA conference is an opportunity to engage with a diverse community of bereaved parents, academics, researchers, clinicians, and policy makers engaged in prevention, bereavement care, and advocacy for reducing stillbirths and newborn deaths. It represents a rich platform for spreading knowledge and sharing local, national and international strategies for stillbirth prevention, as it highlights multi- disciplinary approaches to preventing stillbirths in all its complexity.
