NEST360° & UNICEF,
Target Product Profile (TPP): Newborn Care
In collaboration with UNICEF, the TPPs were developed listing a proposed set of performance and operational characteristics for 16 newborn products across 6 product categories: Hydration, Nutrition and Drug Delivery; Jaundice Management; Point-of-Care Diagnostics; Infection Prevention and Control; Respiratory Support; and Thermal Management.
NEST360° is an evidence-based model for sustainable health systems and implementing quality hospital-based newborn care at national scale. We are committed to closing gaps in access to technology, markets, and human resources.
NEST resources are designed to support the care of small and sick newborns in limited-resource settings. They address topics of neonatal care, newborn care technologies, guidance on newborn care implementation, education, and innovation.
