• New agreements reduce pricing and increase access to neonatal resuscitation equipment in low- and middle-income countries 17-05-2016

The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) today announced agreements with GPC Medical Limited and Shanghai Jolly Medical Education Co., Ltd. that will reduce the price of the neonatal bag and mask resuscitator and the neonatal resuscitation training mannequin by 30-61 percent. These deals are expected to expand access to products that are vital to treating birth asphyxia, a condition which causes an estimated 662,000 newborn deaths annually. CHAI’s work establishing these partnerships was made possible through financial support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is part of the efforts to implement the recommendations of the UN Commission on Life- Saving Commodities for Women’s and Children’s Health.
