What is Helping Babies Survive?

Helping Babies Survive (HBS) is a suite of evidence-based educational training programs designed to reduce neonatal mortality and improve newborn care in resource-limited environments. HBS is an initiative of the AAP, developed in collaboration with WHO, and supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), Save the Children, Latter-day Saint Charities, Laerdal Global Health, Johnson & Johnson, and a number of other global health partners. HBS is comprised of the following programs: Helping Babies Breathe (HBB), Essential Care for Every Baby (ECEB), Essential Care for Small Babies (ECSB) and Improving Care for Mothers and Babies: A guide for improvement teams. Since 2010, HBS programs have provided more than 400,000 health care providers in 80 countries with the knowledge and skills to ensure newborns receive the care they need survive and thrive.
