These web pages are a culmination of facilitated presentations, and related resources, for each of the newborn care topics identified as part of needs assessment visits. The resulting topics are organized within six main categories: Resuscitation, Essential Newborn Care, Small and Sick Baby, Follow-up Care and Prenatal Counseling, Quality Improvement, COVID-19 and Neonatal Care.
The goal of this project was to examine the impact of telementoring on newborn care practices among clinicians in Tanzania, Kenya, and Pakistan. Funding for this grant was awarded by UNICEF to establish a telementoring framework in these three countries. Needs assessments were conducted onsite, with cooperation from technical experts assigned to each country by the AAP, and local UNICEF staff in country. Both education and practice gaps were identified, and topics for facilitation were agreed upon. Technical support was provided to strengthen capacity for management of small and sick newborns by newborn care providers in these countries.
This project was supported by UNICEF and AAP.
