Abstract

The Euro-Peristat comparisons "challenge health professionals and policy makers to confront shortcomings in their own countries": a laudable task. However, what to target and how? The suggestions of the Euro-Peristat data presented in this edition highlight reducing Caesarean delivery, fetal and neonatal mortality, and preterm birth (Zeitlin J et al, BJOG xxxx). An operative intervention and three undesired outcomes: are these rates under our control, and if so, how to effect change? This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
