Tomorrow, July 8th, there will be a Twitter discussion on global newborn health.
As you know, the topic of newborn health is extremely important to me. It is amazing to me how many infants and newborns still die each year. There are ways that we can help the poorest countries in the world reduce their newborn death rates.
It’s not hard to help!

What do you think of when you think about the health and lives of newborns, around the world? Do you have a story to share? A question to ask?
On Monday, July 8 my network of Social Good Moms will join the Gates Foundation and Dr. Gary Darmstadt, Director of Family Health, in a robust 30-minute conversation about global newborn health. Drawing on the successes of April’s Global Newborn Health conference we will continue the discussion about the global challenges facing newborns. What are the causes of newborn death in the poorest countries in the world and what can we do to save their lives?
