Perspectives on Child and Newborn Health
Child and Newborn Health are vital elements of every health program. Increasingly as child health improves and infant mortality rates drop, so the proportional impact of newborn mortality becomes felt. The result is that there is increasing emphasis on newborn health in recent years. In this session we look at various issues that relate to child and newborn health.
