Global Launch Of Lancet Ending Preventable Stillbirths series

Promote the launch of the 2016 Lancet Ending Preventable Stillbirths series – Use the Launch Toolkit

bknation_global-strategy.jpgHelp spread the word about the new Lancet series on stillbirths, set for launch on January 19th (see here for more information about the series). Events could be on January 19, to link with the main launch in London (see below), but could also be any time afterward that works for your group.

On behalf of the Lancet Ending Preventable Stillbirths series partnership, ISA has developed this Toolkit that suggests how you and your organisation can help to spread the information in these important papers including tips for launch events and using social media to best effect. This Toolkit is not only for our member organisations, but any other organisation seeking assistance in promoting the series.

Please let us know if you are planning an event! Email us at info@stillbirthalliance.org
