  • Description:
    On November 18, 1985, members of the International Collaborative Effort on Perinatal and Infant Mortality participated in an American Public Health Association session to show the status of their research. Subsequent to this conference, the members convened a seminar to detail their various research activities and to discuss their current research methodologies. The Planning Group's papers and discussions entailed a review of the complex and comprehensive issues in the health field which are critical with respect to perinatal and infant mortality. This volume offers a number of insights and approaches for enhancing perinatal and infant health. The research, the methodologies, the risk assessment, and the prevention efforts suggest certain strategies that, if utilized, may reduce perinatal and infant mortality. A number of the papers in this report offer evidence of successful interventions which hold promise for other nations to emulate. The Japanese experience with respect to infant mortality is significant. They attribute their success in this area to a concerted national effort to provide both prevention and education programs, as well maternal and infant care programs. The population has historically embraced the government's goals, and it continues to support these efforts by active participation in and compliance with the required health practices. Their innovative and far-reaching approach has achieved the goal of reducing infant and maternal mortality. The methodology undertaken in Sweden appears to have also been successful in achieving a low infant and perinatal mortality rate. As with the Japanese concept, the methodology employed in Sweden is comprehensive and national in nature. Both nations have not only ensured that the population accepts the critical importance of infant and maternal health care but have also succeeded in instilling in the population the conviction that this type of health care is reasonable, necessary, and obligatory. Their programs suggest that their accomplishments can be applied to maternal and infant care in other countries. Other papers included in this volume offer perspectives that can help guide, foster an awareness, and establish a foundation for implementing various innovations and programs which met the needs of the population in many different nations.
