Save Newborns is one of the six Headline Results. UNICEF has committed to support countries in South Asia to reduce newborn mortality from 32 per 1000 live births in 2013 to 25 per 1000 live births in 2017. This is in line with the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) target of reducing global newborn deaths to at least as low as 12 per 1000 live births by 2030.
