Summary

1.7 million newborn lives could be saved each year by investing in quality newborn care; almost half of this impact would result from providing special and intensive hospital care for small and sick newborns.

This webinar is a call to action for governments, development partners, healthcare professionals, parents and communities to invest, implement, inform and innovate in order to strengthen care around the time of birth, improve the quality of maternal and newborn care, reduce inequities, harness the power of families and communities and count every small and sick newborn.

The webinar also addressed the importance of modelling and collecting data on maternal and newborn mortality related to COVID-19.  

The session was facilitated by Dr. Ornella Lincetto, Senior Medical Officer for Newborn Health, World Health Organization.
