What is Helping Babies Breathe (HBB)?

HBB trains birth attendants in essential neonatal resuscitation techniques and newborn care skills that can help save the lives of the approximately 10 million babies born each year who need assistance breathing at birth. HBB has been shown to reduce neonatal mortality by up to 47% and fresh stillbirths by 24%. The HBB curriculum includes scientific updates to harmonize with 2015 ILCOR Consensus on Science with Treatment Recommendations, and the 2012 WHO Basic Newborn Resuscitation Guidelines. HBB educational materials are revised on a five-year cycle following the cycle of revision of neonatal resuscitation guidelines by ILCOR.
