Every Preemie: Family-Led Care for the Small Newborn, Malawi

View Resource View Resource

In Malawi, Every Preemie worked in close collaboration with the Balaka District Health Office and other stakeholders to develop the Family-Led Care model, an innovative approach to providing care for the preterm and LBW baby. The Family-Led Care model is designed to improve the quality of Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) provided to inpatient preterm and LBW newborns; strengthen post-discharge follow-up care; and extend care of the preterm/LBW newborn to the community and household levels. The booklet, Family-Led Care for the Small Newborn: Sharing the Malawi Experience, details the design, implementation and evaluation of the model in Malawi.

Using lessons learned from the Malawi experience, Every Preemie developed a package for global use and adaptation – available here: https://www.everypreemie.org/family-led-care-global/
