Many initiatives, globally and locally, help save lives of pregnant women and children. Essential Newborn Care (ENC) is one.
ENC is a simple cost-effective newborn care intervention that can improve neonatal as well as maternal care. IT is an evidence-based intervintion that
- emphasizes a core sequence of actions, performed methodically (step -by-step);
- is organized so that essential time bound interventions are not interrupted; and
- fills a gap for a package of bundled interventions in a guideline format.
