Helping Babies Survive
is a growing suite of evidence-based, hands-on programs developed to reduce neonatal mortality in resource-limited environments.  Programs are supported and implemented by many global partners including the US Agency for International Development (USAID), Save the Children, Laerdal Global Health, Latter-day Saint Charities, and Johnson & John​son. Together, the HBS programs address the three most common causes of preventable neonatal deaths: complications during childbirth, complications from preterm birth, and neonatal infections​.
