Tanzania

Every newborn, everywhere, deserves the same opportunity to survive and thrive

CHALLENGE AND OPPORTUNITY

In Tanzania, <insert stats>…

  • over <xx> newborns die each year
  • more than <xx> newborns that require hospital care
  • mortality rate of over <xx> deaths per 1000 live births

The majority newborn deaths are preventable. The highest impact package is small and sick newborn care, which is currently low coverage but could be scaled up now.

NEST360 works in partnership with the Government of Tanzania to implement a package of high-quality small and sick newborn care, including affordable technologies, training for clinicians and biomedical engineers, and locally-owned data.
