Working Groups

Would you like to join an ISA Working Group? ISA’s Scientific Advisory Committee has been expanded into groups based on specific topics and projects. We are recruiting people from different backgrounds who have an interest and expertise to contribute, including bereaved parents, researchers, clinicians, other health professionals, as well as social media and communication experts.

We are trying to get a diverse set of members for each group, and you may participate in more than one group. This diagram shows how the three Working Groups – Stillbirth Advocacy, Bereavement, Prevention and Conferences sit within the organization structure.

Group leaders will contact you with information about current activities and explore your interests in more detail.

We ask members to commit to 1 year of participation (we understand you may not be able to make every call/request). We are excited to work with those who participate actively and regularly re-evaluate membership.

We create meaningful connections for our members around the world.

Global impact

We seek out partnerships on every continent to realize our mission of ending preventable deaths and ensuring respectful care


We work with our member organizations to connect people locally across the globe and thereby improve standards of care within their region.

Saving Lives

By unifying the work being done in research, clinical practice and communities, we are helping reduce the unacceptably high loss of lives through stillbirth.

Data Driven

We support rigorous scientific research to ensure effective action for stillbirth and newborn death prevention and bereavement support.
