- Compare preterm delivery rates between different parts of the world and understand how they are achieved and/or estimated.
- Describe the new knowledge on etiology of preterm delivery and to specify the pros and cons with different screening strategies to identify women with increased risk of preterm delivery.
- Discuss the latest knowledge about medical and public health prevention strategies of preterm delivery – both from the US and international perspective.
- Recognize the different obstacles for reducing preterm delivery rates in Latin America, Africa, Australia, Europe and the US. The participants will also be able to recognize the different obstacles in preterm delivery research.
- Discuss different risk factors contribute to the variation of preterm delivery rates in high-income countries.
