Strengthening access to and quality of reproductive health services in humanitarian settings


Training on Newborn Health in Humanitarian Settings

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), International Medical Corps, Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, Ministry of Health South Sudan, Save the Children and UNICEF are conducting a study to evaluate the feasibility of implementing the Newborn Health in Humanitarian Settings: Field Guide to improve newborn care practices among displaced populations in South Sudan.

Newborn Health

The Field Guide prioritizes the most critical health services and supplies to prevent and manage the three main causes of newborn death. International Medical Corps program staff will be trained on programmatic tools, community and facility health workers will be trained on the package of interventions and newborn medical supply kits will be distributed at community, primary care and hospital levels.
