Every Newborn Action Plan Review

After months of support and deliberation from hundreds of interested groups, the World Health Organization has released a draft  of the Every Newborn Action Plan (ENAP)which seeks to put an end to preventable deaths of mothers and newborns. The draft is online for your organization to review and comment on, and the deadline for input is February 28th.

On Wednesday, February 12th, MCHIP, Save the Children, and CORE Group are hosting a detailed review of the draft . The event will include a discussion about ways various organizations can coordinate on the country level in supporting advances in maternal and newborn health.
