This session will provide you with an introduction to Helping Babies Breathe, a neonatal resuscitation curriculum developed so all persons who care for babies at birth can learn to help babies who do not initially breathe well. Reports, stories, and data from the 5 countries where HBB was piloted will be shared by the principal investigators and master trainers. The objective of HBB is to train health care providers and birth attendants in developing countries. A unique methodology and a hands-on focus are used to teach The Golden Minute concept that identifies the steps that birth attendants must take in that first minute of life. HBB has the potential to make a significant contribution to MDG 4. Helping Babies Breathe is developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics in collaboration with USAID, Saving Newborn Lives, NICHD, and other stakeholders.
