How you can scale your impact - saving newborn lives
As a member of Partners for Children, you could help to scale up our Saving Newborn Lives programme. In rural communities, newborn deaths are so commonplace that babies may not even be named until they are six weeks old.
Yet there is substantial evidence that the majority of these deaths could be easily prevented with low cost interventions, such as up skilling health workers to treat infections and resuscitate newborns after birth, and teaching new mothers about caring for their babies.
By helping to scale up Saving Newborn Lives to reach more mothers and babies, you could be part of solutions that aims to save millions of lives.
Thanks to supporters, like you, Fauane is the proud mother of beautiful Neva – but millions of women around the world aren’t so lucky.
Protecting mother and baby
Saving Newborn Lives ensures women and babies are supported from conception to pregnancy, and through childbirth and the most dangerous first 28 days of life
- A well planned and healthy pregnancy
- A safe birth with a skilled midwife present
- Surviving the first few minutes of life
- Access support and advice at home
"The first day of a child's life is the most dangerous. We hear horror stories of mothers walking for hours during labour to find trained help, all too often ending in tragedy. It's criminal that many of these deaths could be averted simply if there was someone on hand to make sure the birth took place safely and who knew what to do in a crisis."
– Helle Thorning-Schmid, CEO Save the Children.
