Preterm birth is the single biggest cause of death and disability in children under the age of 5 in the developed world, and alarmingly, the preterm birth rate in Australia (and worldwide) has been steadily increasing. A national Preterm Birth Prevention Initiative began in 2018, with the sole aim of safely lowering the preterm birth rate across the country.

This workshop, co-hosted by the Australian Preterm Birth Prevention Alliance, will cover the key components of preterm birth prevention, including the work the Alliance has done to date, and future plans and strategies, along with practical information regarding cervical cerclage (the who, why, when and how), how to set up a preterm birth prevention clinic, contemporary management of preterm birth, and short and longer term neonatal outcomes.
