Photo of the Week: Helping newborns survive

Displaced newborn twins and their older brother are seen sleeping in this photograph taken by Marta Ramoneda in Mardan Medical Complex, North West Frontier Province in Pakistan in 2009. The world has made noticeable progress in reducing under-5 child deaths; but progress for newborns has lagged behind. Most newborn deaths are from preventable causes and can be reduced with sufficient resources and attention to quality care. Effective, affordable solutions exist that, if made more widely available, can help save at least two-thirds of newborn lives.
