Newborn Mortality: Threats, Interventions

Surviving the First Day, published in 2013, is part of Save the Children’s annual State of the World’s Mothers report. This year’s report looks at the critical first day of life, when mothers and their newborns face the greatest threats to survival, and when there is tremendous opportunity to save lives. It highlights approaches that are working to bring essential health care to the hard-to-reach places where most deaths occur. In addition, it shows how millions more lives can be saved each year if we invest in proven solutions and help mothers do what’s best for their children.
