Commemorating World Prematurity Day

Each year, fifteen million babies are born prematurely. One million of these newborns die due to complications related to their births.

Sub-saharan Africa and South Asia account for 60 percent of preterm births worldwide.

World Prematurity Day offers an opportunity to reflect on cost-effective solutions for prevention and care of premature births, and how to best offer support for the families of preterm babies. This flier outlines what is needed in terms of prevention, care, and research on newborn and maternal health.
