    Mark your calender 12-15 June 2017 for the 99nicu Meetup, an educational IRL meeting centered around the 99nicu community!
    Maybe you attended the 1st Evidence-Based Neonatology conference in Stockholm 2011. Although the EBNEO conference partly originated within 99nicu, that project has now further developed into its own society (http://ebneo.org). 
    Now is the time to meet again, to further stimulate engagement and the community feeling of 99nicu - we want to invite you and all other members to the 1st 99nicu Meetup, 12-15 June 2017, in Stockholm, Sweden.
    And most importantly, we want to involve you in making the program. We would like to have a mix of really high-profiled key persons, and less well-known younger neonatal staff who are talented speakers.
    Click here to share your ideas about the program!
    99nicu has become a partner of the 6th International Arab Neonatal Care Conference (ANCC2016) that will take place in Dubai, UAE From 29th September-1st of October 2016.
    The meeting is an international hub for neonatologists, pediatricians, researchers, nurses and other health care professionals to join leading international faculty and exchange knowledge.
    Visit http://ancc2016.com for more information!
    The 99nicu Pharmacopedia project is taking form! The goal is to make the web's best resource on pharmacological treatment in the NICU. The Pharmacopeia is discretely opened but there is yet only two drugs listed, Furosemide and Caffeine. Please note that guest access to 99nicu.org is somewhat restricted - for full access to everything, the Pharmacopedia included - just login (and tick "Remember" to stay logged in).
    If you would like to contribute and write up short summaries of drugs used in the NICU - please email stefan.johansson@99nicu.org and you will get instructions and the standardized template for writing such summaries.You find the Pharmacopeia under "Browse -> Pharmacopedia"
    The editorial board formed around this project includes:
    Stefan Johansson, Sweden Yurii Korzhynskyy, Ukraine Tarek Kotb, Saudi Arabia André M. Graça , Portugal Thorben Kracht, Germany Ravi Agarwal, United Kingdom Jasim Shihab, United Kingdom Marcio Fossati, Brazil  
    We have decided to restrict site access for temporary visitors. From now on it is possible to read only a few articles and posts without logging in.
    We have taken this step to increase the number of members who are logging in. It is as easy to log in here as to log in on Facebook  
    If you have a membership but need help to login, first try to reset your password. If you need more assistance - please email info@99nicu.org and we will assist you further.
    If you are not a member but work in the context of neonatal medicine or research, sign up for a membership. It is free of charge!

    Believe it or not - but on the 11th of May it is exactly 10 years ago since 99nicu opened its doors on the web!
    My best greetings to everyone who has contributed to the first ten years!
    I'd wished I could telegram you all a piece of the virtual birthday cake  
    PS. If you would like to give a 10y Anniversary Contribution to keep this ship afloat for another 10y, have a look here!

    I would like to high-light a request in the forums.
    Input is wanted for a strategic review conducted by the Department of Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health of the World Health Organization. The objective is to conduct a rapid, high-level assessment of diagnostic and treatment guidelines used at hospitals, in frontline health facilities, and by community health workers.
    The posting member @axf10 seeks for pediatricians/neonatologists with practical experience in low and middle income countries to complete this survey. 
    Read more here on the link below how contribute to this survey.

    We have been online for 10 years now! Help us to keep going for another 10 years!
    On May 11 2006, I proudly posted that 99nicu was online after a few months of preparation.  

    Since then, we have achieved many good things. Most importantly, we have grown into a large community that is well-known for independence and a friendly atmosphere. While I have personally invested tons of time and money into this project, our bright future for a coming 10 years depends on a sustainable business model.
    My personal opinion is that crowd-funding would be a great way to add funds into our system, as I have myself experience from contributing to other projects this way.
    That's way I opened up a possibility to share a 10y Anniversary Donation!
