Poor maternal nutrition and health, preterm birth, and inadequate care during the critical first week of life lead to a high rate of neonatal deaths—the deaths of newborns in the first month of life. Annually, almost 4 million newborns do not survive the first month. Factors that can improve outcomes for infants include delivery at a birthing center, nurse or midwife trained in neonatal resuscitation and care, exclusive breastfeeding, management of hypothermia, and home visits by trained health workers.
