Please join us for a webinar that will follow-up on the information presented during “Newborns and COVID-19: Now is the time to act for every newborn, everywhere” on March 30, hosted by the Network for Improving Quality of Care for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health and the Every Newborn Action Plan management team with the support of WHO and UNICEF. The previous webinar discussed the findings and policy implications of the newly published evidence in the Lancet and BMJ Global Health on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on small and sick newborns.

This second webinar will highlight the perspective of practitioners to examine the ongoing efforts to mitigate against the effects of COVID-19 to continue lifesaving care for small and sick newborns. We will hear from country experts on what work has been completed to date, key lessons learned, factors for success, and challenges that still need to be addressed.

Please note we will also offer simultaneous interpretation in French and Spanish.

We would like to hear from you about what issues you would like to discuss during the webinar. Please take a moment to submit your questions or suggested issues here.
