Helping Babies Survive (HBS) is a suite of hands-on, evidence-based educational training programs that include Helping Babies Breathe (HBB), Essential Care for Every Baby (ECEB), and Essential Care for Small Babies (ECSB). Designed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the training is aimed at reducing neonatal mortality in resource-limited environments by addressing the three most common causes of preventable neonatal deaths; complications during childbirth, complications from preterm birth, and neonatal infections.
MedGlobal trained volunteers to become Master Trainers in the program. The two-day course in Essential Care for Every Baby and Essential Care for Small Babies took place on September 7-8 at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.
MedGlobal is sending volunteers to Pakistan and Yemen to train local healthcare professionals in Helping Babies Breathe, which is part of the Helping Babies Survive program in November. Please support the missions by donating today!
