Managing newborn health in the global community

Am J Public Health. 2001 Oct;91(10):1563-4. doi: 10.2105/ajph.91.10.1563.


The largest health disparities in the world are found in maternal and neonatal mortality figures between the industrialized countries and the poorest sections of the poorest countries. Young lives would be saved if the skills and knowledge that have been accumulated by health workers around the world could be readily applied. The problems reside with lack of management resources rather than lack of scientific knowledge. "The Healthy Newborn: A Reference Manual for Program Managers" is a graduate course in management aimed at providing health to newborns and healthy newborns to communities.
