Innovation Description

Recent evidence show that many stillbirths are preventable and urgently calls for appropriate strategies to improve awareness of risk factors and antenatal detection of at-risk babies(1). However, there is no accurate diagnostic approach to identify fetuses at risk (2,3). The current sonographic method is associated with a high false-positive rate and a significant false-negative risk(4). In addition, community awareness remains acutely low, with no strategies to support social -reintegration(5)
