Opportunities for Africa's newborns

This is a free downloadable book from WHO:

WHO | Opportunities for Africa's newborns: : "Each year at least 1.16 million newborn babies die in sub-Saharan Africa. This region has the highest risk of newborn deaths and the slowest progress in reducing mortality. More than two thirds of these babies could be saved with low cost, low tech interventions, most of which are already in policy but do not reach the poor. Countries are finding that addressing newborn health is a catalyst to strengthening existing health packages and other programmes. This publication has grown out of a wide partnership to seize this opportunity and promote investment in Africa's future."
