Linda Franck Co-Authors Survive and Thrive Global Report on Newborns

Every year, nearly 30 million babies are born too soon or too small or become sick and need specialized care to survive. Yet with nurturing care, these babies can live without major complications, according to Survive and Thrive: Transforming Care for Every Small and Sick Newborn, a report commissioned by UNICEF and the World Health Organization (WHO), with support from partners including the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Save the Children, and the Gates Foundation. 

The report's key findings, released in December 2018, provide an overview of what will be presented in the full report, including a clear call to action to accelerate progress towards ensuring every newborn has the chance to live a healthy and productive life. The full technical report will be released soon. Professor and Jack & Elaine Koehn Endowed Chair in Pediatric Nursing Linda Franck is a co-author on this landmark report.
