The All Wales Perinatal Survey began in 1993 as a continuous surveillance of perinatal and infant mortality in the Principality and is funded by the Welsh Government.

Aims:

AWPS aims to improve the understanding of the ways in which the risk of death in late fetal life and infancy may be reduced by:

  • collecting data on all babies who die in Wales from 20 weeks of pregnancy to 1 year of age;
  • describing differences in death rates between different areas of Wales;
  • describing unrecognised differences in the cause of death.
