About the conference

On behalf of the International Stillbirth Alliance (ISA) and the International Society for the study and prevention of Perinatal and Infant Death (ISPID), in conjunction with the Australian Centre of Research Excellence in Stillbirth and Red Nose, We are delighted to invite you to join us at the 2020 International Conference in Brisbane at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, 22-24 October 2020. 

This conference will address Stillbirth, Neonatal death,SIDS and Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) globally. The major theme of the conference is Driving Change. Our aim is to showcase strategies to effectively address the burden of stillbirth, neonatal death, SIDS and SUDI across high, middle and low income country settings. 

The program will include something for everyone, whichever your area of interest. There will be outstanding plenary and parallel sessions providing plenty of opportunity for discussion to learn from one another hearing  from experts in the field including parents, researchers and policy makers.  Parents are at the heart of the work of ISA and ISPID and we encourage parents to participate in all aspects of the Conference they wish to join. The conference Parent Committee is actively working to ensure the conference is relevant and provides a supportive environment for parents who attend. It is an opportunity for each of us to extend our own knowledge base, to forge new partnerships and initiate new work together, as well as strengthening our existing relationships. 

We encourage you to participate in our global conversation in the beautiful city of Brisbane in October 2020.
