In Focus

NIDCAP in Iran:


Newborn Individualized Developmental Care and Assessment Program (NIDCAP) is a comprehensive approach to care that is developmentally supportive and individualized to the premature infant’s needs and the level of stability in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). It significantly reduces the premature newborns’ health problems as well as developmental disorders in future life. NIDCAP seeks to support families and the professionals who care for the infants and provide them with required training within the NIDCAP framework.


The Ministry of Health and Medical Education and UNICEF Iran Office joined forces to adapt and localize the NIDCAP approach into services of the NICUs in Iran. In 2013 this initiative was adopted through establishment of a national fellowship program on NIDCAP for the personnel of four reference NICUs in Tehran, Shiraz and Tabriz as Centers of Excellence.
