The first HBS program was introduced in 2010, and over the past decade the global community of HBS trainers has learned a lot about teaching these lifesaving curricula around the world. In our ongoing commitment to develop resources to advance quality newborn health in limited-resource settings, we asked trainers to share their experiences with us. Whether you are an experienced HBS trainer or planning your first training, here are a few questions—and answers—to know before you go.

If you have additional insight and experiences to add, please consider submitting via the form below.
