Global Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth Repository GAPPS
Data and specimens will come to the Repository through a network of collection sites that have each received approval for this project by their local IRBs and Ethics Committees and training in standardized collection procedures. Hospitals participating in the network as collection sites have racial/ethnic and socioeconomically diverse populations, high preterm birth rates and geographic and environmental differences. These characteristics make the data heterogeneous and well suited to public health and medical research. Upon review and approval by the GAPPS Utilization Committee, repository data and specimens will be made available to researchers around the world to focus and synergize investigation of research normal and abnormal pregnancies, including how pregnancy affects maternal and child health after deliver.
