Preterm birth, delivery prior to 37 weeks’ gestation, is the leading cause of infant and early childhood death worldwide. Risk factors include biological and psychosocial characteristics. Efforts around the prevention of preterm birth focus on these areas as well, but largely at the clinical and individual level.

This issue will focus on advancing the population-based knowledge of preterm birth prevention through clinical, behavioral, or social sciences.
