Mission
       The mission of the PASS Network is to perform community-linked studies to investigate the role of prenatal alcohol exposure in the risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as Stillbirth and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).

Who is the PASS Network?
“PASS” stands for Prenatal Alcohol in SIDS and Stillbirth. The PASS Network is made up of doctors, researchers and statisticians who want to know more about the causes of SIDS and adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as stillbirth and FASD. The members of the network are from all over the world. The network is governed by the PASS Steering Committee which is composed of members from the Clinical Sites, Analysis Centers and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

What is the Safe Passage Study?
The Safe Passage Study is the Main Study run by the PASS Network. The purpose of the study is to understand some of the causes of SIDS, stillbirth, and FASD, especially those related to exposure to alcohol at anytime in pregnancy. The Safe Passage Study plans to enroll approximately 12,000 pregnant women from the United States and South Africa and follow the development of their babies through pregnancy and the infants’ first year of life.
