A child’s risk of dying is highest in the neonatal period, the first 28 days of life. Safe childbirth and effective neonatal care are essential to prevent these deaths. 45% of child deaths under the age of 5 take place during the neonatal period. (According to WHO). These trends are pronounced among the low social strata. Driving factors include; limited reproductive facilities and challenged referral systems, improper reproductive health choices, limiting traditional practices/barriers. Our action is centered on comprehensive sex education in schools; promotion of youth friendly reproductive health services; provision of basic obstetric services.
