Premature Birth Statistics Worldwide

November 17 is World Prematurity Day

Tthe day when we focus everyone’s attention on the global problem of premature birth.

The March of Dimes joins with parent groups and organizations in countries around the world to raise awareness about premature birth and how it can be prevented.  To date, many of the causes of premature birth are still unknown. The March of Dimes has launched a major new research initiative to find the causes of premature birth and are creating a network of five Prematurity Research Centers. Two centers are already at work, with hundreds of researchers working as a team to uncover the causes of premature birth.

This March of Dimes has also made this infographic on premature births available.
