Helping Babies Breathe is being implemented through a Global Development Alliance (GDA) between AAP, USAID, Laerdal Medical, NICHD, Save the Children’s Saving Newborn Lives program, and USAID implementing partners. This public-private partnership works towards achieving a significant reduction in neonatal mortality by increasing the availability of resuscitation to manage newborn asphyxia during birth.
The Alliance seeks to support countries in expanding high quality resuscitation services as part of a broader package of essential newborn care, including early and exclusive breastfeeding, thermal protection, clean cord care, and early identification and management of infections and low birth weight.
The Alliance offers evidence-based training, high quality, affordable resuscitation equipment, and technical assistance to support countries in their efforts to improve coverage and quality of newborn resuscitation services as part of national efforts to reduce newborn mortality.
