The healthy newborn; a reference manual for program managers

Filetype[PDF-736.21 KB]


  • Description:
    "Of the estimated 8 million babies who die just before birth or in the first 28 days of life, 98 percent die in developing countries. Yet almost all the books about newborn health are aimed at the two percent of deaths in high-technology care in industrialized countries. There is a dearth of information to enable program managers to design, implement and evaluate effective interventions to address the important problem of improving newborn health. This manual has grown out of a partnership between the WHO Collaborating Center in Perinatal Care at the Centers for Disease Control and CARE. While implementing programs to address fetal and neonatal mortality, we realized the need for such a reference manual and CD-ROM resource." - p. i
  • Content Notes:
    prepared by Joy Lawn, Brian J. McCarthy, Susan Rae Ross.

    "This manual has been funded by the CARE CDC Collaborative Health Initiative (CCHI), with a grant from the Woodruff Foundation, administered in conjunction with the CDC Foundation." - p. xvi
