Webinar: What is the vision for improving the care of small and sick newborns for 2021 in your region?

8 December, 2020

The message below is forwarded from the Healthy Newborn Network. In the context of our current discussion on Maintaining essential health services during COVID, this raises the question: What has been the impact of COVID on newborn care in your country/facility?


Please join us for our webinar and discussion:

What is the vision for improving the care of small and sick newborns for 2021 in your region? Advances, challenges, and way forward.

The Care of the Small and Sick Newborn Community of Practice (SSNB CoP) cordially invites you to our last webinar in 2020, where we will be looking forward to a new year full of hope and improved health and survival for all babies around the world. We will be focusing on India, and the Latin America and Caribbean region. Our first webinar of 2021 will focus on Africa sub-regions.

We are looking to be inclusive of most languages spoken in the regions, so we will have simultaneous translation for presentations and discussion. For this webinar Spanish/English and English/Spanish will be available.
