Neonatal Healthcare

A child under the age of 28 days is known as a neonate or newborn infant. The child is most likely to die in the first 28 days of life. The vast majority of newborn deaths occur in developing nations with limited access to medical care.  Building strong health services, ensuring that skilled personnel attend every birth, and providing emergency hospital care are all necessary for newborn survival. In order to increase survival chances and lay the groundwork for a healthy life, it is essential to provide essential newborn care as soon as possible, including immediate and prolonged contact with the skin as well as early, exclusive breastfeeding

Essential newborn care, also known as critical care for all newborns in the first few days after birth, ought to be available to all of them. Essential newborn care entails providing essential care both immediately following the birth and throughout the newborn period. It is required at home and in the medical facility.
