In 2018 the Stillbirth Advocacy Working Group (SAWG), founded by the Partnership for Maternal, Child, and Newborn Health and co-chaired by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the International Stillbirth Alliance, developed a scorecard to track progress against the Call to Action that was presented in the final paper of the Lancets Ending Preventable Stillbirths series. The SAWG aims to promote use of the Scorecard to track each component of the Lancets Call to Action, including meeting the Every Newborn Action Plan global stillbirth rate target, as well as reducing equity divides in sub-national stillbirth rates, increasing access to and quality of antenatal and intrapartum care and family planning, improving the quality of post-stillbirth bereavement care, and reducing stigma associated with stillbirth.

Following on from this work, the Stillbirth CRE is developing an adaptation of the Scorecard for use in high-income countries and settings (HIC). The aim of the Ending Preventable Stillbirths Scorecard for High-Income Countries is to provide a tool for the global community, including national governments, UN bodies, bilateral organisations, parent organisations, donors and NGOs, to track progress against the Ending Preventable Stillbirths Call to Action, in particular highlighting areas where insufficient progress is being made and where further investments and actions are needed. New indicators for high income settings have been identified, from sources such as the indicator list for the United States Healthy People 2020 national health objectives. A draft version of the HIC Scorecard has been trialled the US, the UK, and Australia to assess the feasibility and utility of each indicator, and incorporated comments into the draft.
