Latin American and Caribbean Neonatal Alliance
The Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) Neonatal Alliance is committed to promoting the engagement of relevant professional networks, national alliances, and civil society in the implementation of participatory accountability mechanisms to improve access and quality of care to newborns. The Latin American Neonatal Alliance is committed to promoting: (1) the inclusion of relevant issues on newborn health in policies, strategies and plans of action both at regional and national level; (2) a Regional Forum for sharing experiences and state of the art research and evidence based interventions for newborn health and its implementation; and (3) the development and strengthening of monitoring and surveillance for newborn health. The expected impact of this $120,000 commitment will come through national and local actions through plans of action for newborn health, aligned with the Every Newborn Action Plan.
