Stillbirth Foundation Australia’s is recognised nationally as a leading voice on stillbirth and represents the voices of thousands of Australian families who have been touched by stillbirth. Its mission is to significantly reduce the incidence of stillbirth through research, education and advocacy.
The strategic goals of Stillbirth Foundation Australia are:
- Supporting researchers to generate new knowledge about stillbirth and encouraging the translation of research into practice
- Supporting the community and health professionals to change behaviours that will help to reduce the incidence of stillbirth and support bereaved families
- Extending the reach and impact of the Stillbirth Foundation Australia by being a leader and advocate in the field of stillbirth
Long before the establishment of the Stillbirth CRE, the Stillbirth Foundation Australia has had long-standing support of Mater's stillbirth research program, and was a formal partner in the successful request for funding awarded by the NHMRC.
