Unang Yakap:  Essential Newborn Care (ENC)

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.
