Effective programmatic and advocacy efforts require reliable and up-to-date data. The new stillbirth country and regional profiles present snapshots and interactive data visualizations on levels and trends in stillbirths as well as an assessment of progress towards the Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP) stillbirths targets for 195 countries. An outlook to the future using scenario-based projections shows the required annual reduction to meet the ENAP targets and the number of stillbirths that could be prevented when targets are met. Other indicators closely related to stillbirths such as the neonatal mortality rate, maternal mortality rate or number of live births are also highlighted in the profiles.

The future we want
In 14 countries – including three low- and lower-middle income countries (Cambodia, India and Mongolia) – the stillbirth rate decreased by more than half between 2000 and 2019
