The release of the first-ever estimates on stillbirth by the UN Inter-Agency Group for Child Mortality Estimation (IGME) include the number of babies that are stillborn every year, as a result of pregnancy and birth-related complications, the absence of health workers and basic services. The report includes new data on the additional babies that could be stillborn due to COVID-19 related disruptions in child and maternal health services.
