Publish Date: September 2019
Author: MCSP

This assessment was designed to understand the newborn care content in country materials for Integrated Management of Newborn and Childhood Illness and integrated community case management. Specifically the assessment focuses on content related to essential newborn care, postnatal care, care for low-birthweight and preterm babies, breastfeeding and support to mothers for breast milk feeding, management of possible serious bacterial infection, and care during referral. The review findings will contribute to global- and national-level discussions and revisions to newborn content in standard guidelines for primary health service delivery.
