World Prematurity Day
November 17, 2020
Together for babies born too soon — Caring for the future
Join NEST360° in supporting World Prematurity Day!
This November 17, we invite you to join us and take a moment to reflect on the impact of preterm birth around the globe. World Prematurity Day calls our attention to the babies who were born too early and the health challenges they can face from day one. Premature birth and its complications are the main cause of newborn death in the world. Every year, nearly 1 million newborns die in sub-Saharan Africa, most from the consequences of being born too soon and a lack of equity in healthcare resources to provide needed interventions. This is still an urgent health crisis, and especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We must raise awareness and not lose momentum toward achieving global goals for newborns.
On World Prematurity Day, November 17, we ask you to speak up and take action for moms and babies everywhere.
