Saving Newborns One Minute at a Time
How does it work?
Help us as we work to use HBS techniques to save the lives of newborns and reduce the rate of infant mortality around the globe!
In 2010, the American Association of Pediatricians (AAP) initiated the Helping Babies Survive Program (HBS) in collaboration with numerous global health organizations. Among HBB’s partners are the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID). HBB is a direct response to the WHO’s estimate that 1 million babies die each year from birth asphyxia, with the goal of reducing the global child mortality rate by two-thirds before 2015.
