Helping Babies Breathe

Helping Babies Breathe is a training program developed by members of the American Academy of Pediatrics to give developing countries the essential skills of newborn resuscitation to reduce infant mortality. The program was introduced in Kenya, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Tanzania for testing and validation. Helping Babies Breathe was developed on the premise that all persons who care for babies at birth can learn to protect healthy babies and assist those who cannot breathe well on their own.
