FEATURED PROGRAM

Saving Newborn Lives

Every baby—in America and around the world—deserves the same level of basic care at birth.

That’s why the AAP Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) provides an evidence-based approach to neonatal resuscitation that all professionals can follow. Simply stated, NRP ensures that health care providers apply the most effective practices during the most precious, important 60 seconds of life.

In 2010, we launched a new program, Helping Babies Breathe—now under the Helping Babies Survive (HBS) umbrella — to make this evidence-based practice available and accessible to everyone, regardless of resources.

The growth and impact of NRP and HBB has been made possible by support from Laerdal Foundation for Acute Medicine, Johnson & Johnson, Latter-day Saint Charities, Mead Johnson Nutrition, Ronald McDonald House Charities and USAID, as well as many individual donors, all of whom share our commitment to giving babies all over the world a healthy start to life.
