A neonatal resuscitation curriculum for resource limited circumstances.

Helping Babies Breathe is an initiative of the American Academy of Pediatrics in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), US Agency for International Development (USAID), Saving Newborn Lives, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), and a number of other global health organizations.

A Global Public-Private Development Alliance has been formed between USAID, NICHD, Save the Children, AAP and Laerdal to facilitate implementation of HBB and thereby scaling up lifesaving newborn care around the world. Read more about the Alliance here.
