The day a child is born is by far the most dangerous day in that child’s life, resulting in over a third of newborn deaths. Four out of five newborn deaths result from three preventable and treatable conditions: prematurity; neonatal infections; and complications during childbirth.
Up to two thirds of newborn deaths can be prevented if known, effective health measures are provided. The lack of progress in reducing maternal and newborn mortality is in large part due to poor health and social infrastructure, weak service delivery, and a critical shortage of qualified health workers.

Newborns Vietnam is funded entirely from voluntary donations and your support will make a vital difference to the advancement of neonatal care and the help prevent needless deaths of newborns. Help us by donating now.
