Summary

 The State of India's Newborns is a treatise on newborn health in India, the country with the highest burden of childbirths and neonatal deaths.  It covers the burden and trends in neonatal and maternal mortality, provides an overview on the policies, programs and services related to newborn health, summarizes newborn care initiatives and programs of the NNF and other partners, identifies programmatic, research, and advocacy gaps, and proposes a way forward.  The SOIN has also attempted to encapsulate a large body of program-relevant research from the country. It is a tribute to the researchers in India that the country has contributed more literature and evidence on newborn health issues than any other developing country.
