Integrating Essential Newborn Care into Countries’ Policies and Programs

View Resource

 Saving Newborn Lives focuses on results and integrates field programs, research, and advocacy to show policymakers why it is critical to improve newborn health and how essential newborn care (ENC) can be integrated into existing health programs. The initiative emphasizes cost-effective and sustainable interventions, the most important of which are prenatal and birth preparedness interventions; ensuring clean and safe delivery, with special emphasis on skilled care at delivery; and providing postnatal care, including ensuring immediate and exclusive breastfeeding, drying and warming, and early postnatal health visits for both mothers and newborns.
