Highlights

Every year, 30 million newborns globally require some level of inpatient care. A child’s early environment and experiences have a direct and long-term impact on his or her brain development and lay the foundation for health, learning, productivity, and well-being throughout the child’s life.

This joint report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization focuses on the world’s most vulnerable newborns. It outlines the global problem, emphasizes progress made and summarizes what can be done to transform inpatient care for small and sick newborns. The report further highlights the need for investment in quality inpatient newborn care and for accurate and reliable data to help shape policy and to measure the impacts of inpatient care on the vulnerable newborns.
