Better Care for Babies Born Too Soon

Each year, an estimated 15 million babies around the world—one in ten—are born prematurely, making preterm birth one of the leading causes of death for children under the age of five. When a baby is born too soon, health complications due to their early birth can decrease their chances of survival and their ability to live long, healthy lives. But by supporting families, as well as health professionals and the systems they work in, we can reduce the burden of preterm births where it is greatest.
