World Prematurity Day

To end preventable child deaths by 2030, we must focus attention on preterm birth—the leading cause of death for children under age 5. There are 15 million babies born preterm each year – and over 1 million deaths of children under 5 years from related complications. We have solutions to prevent and treat preterm birth complications. Now is the time to scale up quality care to all women and newborns for them to survive, thrive and transform society. 

  • World Birth Defects Day is March 3rd

    February 16, 2017
    Thank you for your support of World Prematurity Day in November 2016! As the health of babies is critically important, will you consider helping raise awareness for World Birth Defects Day on March 3rd?

    Birth defects affect about 6% of infants and result in approximately 8.1 million birth defect-related disabilities every year.  An estimated 303,000 newborns die during the first 28 days of life every year from birth defects.

    Join the Thunderclap and spread the word at http://po.st/WBDD17.

    Thanks for raising your voice.
