SURVIVE and THRIVE
Transforming care for every small and sick newborn
The global neonatal mortality rate declined from 31 to 18 deaths per 1000 live births between 2000 and 2017. But three years into the era of the SDGs, we are still far from our goal of reducing newborn deaths to 12 per 1000, or less, by 2030 in all countries. Bending the curve further will require a laser-sharp focus on reorganizing health systems to provide quality care, and continuity of care, for newborns – especially those who are critically ill.
