  • World Prematurity Day 2016!


    17 November is World Prematurity Day, a day to bring light on the public arena to the world-wide burden of preterm birth.

    With advances in combatting infections, complications of preterm birth is now the main cause of mortality among children before 5 years of age. Of 6 millions estimated deaths among children <5y, preterm birth and its complications account for about 1 million.

    In many countries, there are events set up by health care providers, parent organisations, charities and organisations.

    In addition to your own local channels, we would like to promote a few web sites with information about the World Prematurity Day:

    And, additionally, find tweets using the hashtag #WorldPrematurityDay (https://twitter.com/hashtag/worldprematurityday)
