Pregnancy Research Review Study


This study aims to generate a sound evidence base on UK pregnancy research needs and priorities and how these compare to the current funding landscape. The Pregnancy Research Subgroup has comissioned RAND, an independent research contractor to conduct the study and will use the outputs of this project to inform their work.



The study will consist of three parts:

  • Analysis of the current level of spending pregnancy research in the UK.
  • Review data on the healthcare costs associated with pregnancy and the levels of research spend on other aspects of health.
  • Identify and explore what the key stakeholders understand the key research priorities in this area to be.

The results will be published in a public report, expected at the end of 2019.
