Newborns are perhaps the most vulnerable population all over the world. Babies born too soon, less than 37 weeks of gestation are particularly at greater risk. Currently, prematurity is the leading cause of death among under five children globally and a leading cause of disability and ill health later in life. Children born too small, weighing less than 2.5kg at birth is also a major contributor of newborn and child deaths.
World prematurity Day (17th November), is a day to globally sensitize stakeholders and celebrate the journey of premature infants and healthcare providers. It is against this backdrop that Nestle Nutrition Institute in CWAR plans to commemorate the world prematurity day organized symposiums from the 16th - 18th of November 2020.
To further test the retention rate from the event, this quiz was put together for healthcare professionals who participated.
