Every Child ALIVE

About 70 babies lose their lives every day in Ghana. This is mainly due to premature birth, infections and complications during and after delivery. In spite of the availability of skilled antenatal care and birth attendants at health facilities during delivery, newborn and maternal deaths remain high.

With support from partners like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Italian National Committee, various health centers across the country have been equipped with Newborn Care Units (NCU) and birth attendants have been trained to save the lives of babies.
