Baroness Hodgson of Abinger – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department of Health

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Baroness Hodgson of Abinger on 2016-06-27.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what reductions they aim to achieve in rates of (1) stillbirths, (2) neonatal deaths, and (3) brain injuries, in (a) single pregnancies, and (b) multiple pregnancies, by 2030.

Lord Prior of Brampton

In November 2015, the Secretary of State announced a national ambition to halve the rates of stillbirths, neonatal and maternal deaths and brain injuries occurring during or soon after birth by 2030. This ambition applies to both single and multiple pregnancies.

The Department will publish an annual report on the progress towards achieving this aim and will include information on twins and multiple births. The first report will be published later this year.
