Did you know that nearly 3 million newborns die each year and and that 2.6 million are stillborn? (Newborn2013.com) With education and opening up a platform for a global discussion such as the Global Newborn Health Conference, we can reduce these statistics. The 2013 Global Newborn Health Conference will be taking place April 15-18th in South Africa where a global conversation on the important topic of newborn health will be led by supporters including @gatesfoundation, @unicef, @savethechildren, @mchipdc, and many others. If you would like to follow along for what will be a very important conversation you can follow on Twitter and tweet with the #newborn2013 hashtag.
