Summit

International Summit for impacting the standard of care for newborns „Let’s take the first steps together”.

 

Coalition for Preemies and Polish Neonatal Society are organising an International Summit for impacting the standard of care for newborns „Let’s take the first steps together”, which will be held between 13 and 14 November in Warsaw. 

Representatives of numerous countries from Europe will share their knowledge and experiences on the newborn care in their respective countries. Discussions will focus on areas in need of change and solutions that can have a positive impact in advancement of current systems and implementation of innovative solutions.

Advancing newborn care is one of the priorities as outlined by the World Health Organization and so should be a priority of every government. The meeting will bring together scientific institutions, medical societies, non-governmental organizations, decision-makers and people promoting the interests of newborns.

The meeting will take place on the eve of the World Prematurity Day, which this year will be celebrated in the spirit of international community.
