Reproductive Health, Vol. 10, Supplement 1, 15 November 2012. Reproductive Health Journal has published a supplement entitled “Born Too Soon” which addresses factors in the preconception and pregnancy period which may increase the risk of preterm birth and also outlines potential interventions which may reduce preterm birth rates and improve survival of preterm babies by as much as 84% annually. This is critical in order to achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG 4) for child survival by 2015 and beyond.
