Saving Newborn Lives

Worldwide too many newborns continue to die. In 2015, neonatal mortality accounted for three quarters of all infant deaths in Vietnam and more than half of mortality in under 5 years.

For the most vulnerable newborns strengthening existing hospital based care is the most effective way of saving newborn lives. High quality care for sick newborns requires careful monitoring by appropriately trained nurses and doctors with a sound understanding of the physiological and developmental needs of the small or the sick newborn. More neonatal deaths could be prevented with greater availability of hospital Neonatal Intensive Care. In high-income settings access to this care is nearly universal, in middle income and poor countries, coverage, access and quality of care are very variable.

The provision of high quality nursing and medical care of small and sick newborns not only saves lives but also leads to improved outcomes and reduces the burden of long term disability for survivors, their families and society. Disability is greatest in middle income countries, particularly where neonatal care has been scaled up without due attention to the quality of care provided. There are many constraints, usually related to very low levels of staffing, poorly equipped units and a lack of specific knowledge and competencies in assessing and managing small and sick newborns.

NewbornsVietnam provide bespoke neonatal nurse training and medical education programmes. Their's training programmes are developed and delivered in partnership with British higher education institutions and NHS teaching hospitals, local health providers and medical training colleges.

NewbornsVietnam are working in partnership with Da Nang Hospital for Women & Children, Vietnam’s National Children’s Hospital in Hanoi and district and provincial hospitals that serve large rural populations in central Vietnam.
