Group B Strep (2)

7 January, 2024

Dear Marti,

Thank you for your message about Group B strep: https://www.hifa.org/dgroups-rss/group-b-strep

I was interested to see the intro video on your home page


"Hello, my name is Benna Tomlin (?sp)... I'm a mom whose baby died from complications of Strep B and I felt woefully uninformed about the risks of Group B Strep...]"

Group B Strep International aims to:

'Provide complimentary GBS awareness info and materials

Exhibit and present at conferences worldwide​​.

Advocate to close the gaps in GBS care for ALL babies'

Please can you say a bit more about your work and especially about the challenge of meeting women's (and health workers') information needs?

Also, HIFA is proud to have Group B Strep International as a HIFA Supporting Organisation:


I look forward to exploring possibilities for collaboration.

Best wishes, Neil
