Essential Newborn Care

It is estimated that 34 out of every 1,000 babies born in developing countries die before they reach one month of age. In this course, authors discuss the continuum of care of the newborn which spans antenatal care, labor and birth care, immediate newborn care, and postpartum care for mother and newborn, and devote an entire section to infant feeding.

Course content was adapted from USAID's Global Health eLearning Center, which is managed by the Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project, led by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for Communication Programs (CCP).
