Project “Healthy Baby” saves babies’ lives. We have been conducting this nationwide medical training program in Vietnam since 2008. Project “Healthy Baby” trains “trainers” in Neonatal Resuscitation (NRP) & Infant Stabilization (S.T.A.B.L.E.), both of which target the critical neonatal period—the first 28 days of life—when most infant deaths take place.
Working closely our partner Project Vietnam, as well as with foreign health ministries and professional medical organizations, Project “Healthy Baby” gives healthcare providers the knowledge and skills they need to save newborn lives. Project “Healthy Baby” established self-sustaining regional instructor groups who provide ongoing training to other practitioners who deliver or provide care for newborns.
All textbooks and training materials have been translated and published in Vietnamese, with permission from the American Academy of Pediatrics and S.T.A. B.L.E., Inc. Since 2008, we trained 270 Vietnamese instructors in neonatal resuscitation, who in turn have trained more than 5,800 of their colleagues. And since 2015, 141 instructors have been trained in S.T.A.B.L.E., and have gone on to train 859 of their colleagues.
