  • Description:
    On August 6-9, 1984, the International Collaborative Effort (ICD) on Perinatal and Infant Mortality of the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) convened an International Symposium for the purpose of coordinating research activities of NCHS with parallel activities in selected industrialized countries. The results of these activities are expected to provide guidance for Public Health Service programs and activities designed to improve infant health and reduce the disparities that currently exist between racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups in the United States. The ICE Planning Group is comprised of members from the National Center for Health Statistics, the Center for Environmental Health of the Centers for Disease Control, the Division of Maternal and Child Health of the Health Resources and Services Administration, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development of the National Institutes of Health and the Association of Vital Records and Health Statistics. This group also includes two eminent researchers from each of six countries: the Federal Republic of Germany, Great Britain, Israel, Japan, Norway and Sweden. The participants of the Symposium included as well epidemiologists, physicians, researchers, health statisticians and health planners experienced in the areas of perinatal and infant health and mortality conditions. The Symposium devoted the first 2 days to presentations describing recent trends and levels, health care systems, and current research and developments related to perinatal and infant mortality in each country represented. On the third day, the participants divided into 4 working groups on: . Risk factors affecting pregnancy outcome; Clinical interventions related to fetal health; Clinical interventions related to infant health; Community interventions. Reports were prepared and presented on the fourth and final day. Recommendations for research activities of mutual concern were made. By publishing these Proceedings, it is hoped that the communication and collaboration will continue far beyond this Symposium.
