Policy Track: Congressional Briefing: 'Helping Babies Get to One'
The American Academy of Pediatrics cordially invites you to a briefing on Helping Babies Breathe, a global public-private initiative to reduce infant mortality. Come and be a part of a launch of a new report examining different interventions/approaches for helping newborn babies live until they are the age of one. This event will feature in-country experts from various countries from around the world. Helping Babies Breath (HBB) is an evidence-based curriculum in neonatal resuscitation for use in resource limited areas. The scientific basis for this educational program is the neonatal evidence evaluation of ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation), the evidence base also shared by the Neonatal Resuscitation Program of the American Academy of Pediatrics/American Heart Association. The global curriculum is designed to be used by skilled birth attendants who are responsible for the care of both the woman and the newborn infant at delivery, who may not have assistance from a second trained helper. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to jbaumberger@aap.org.
