Amici della Neonatologia (ANT) from Trento, Italy, long term partner of Day One Health in the implementation of the programs that support intensive newborn care in Asia, has organized in Vietnam a training for Provincial and District level hospitals. The training was done in Hanoi between 23 and 25 October, 2019, and the main trainers were 2
Italian experts from the main Hospital in Trento (Santa Chiara): Cologna Marina and Pallaver Annalisa. The main subject of the training was the promotion of kangaroo mother care (KMC), a practice that support mothers to keep their babies skin to skin during the period immediately after birth to promote a faster healing of pathologic children and help their neurological development. The course also promoted exclusive breastfeeding and other important skills for the care of the healthy and pathologic
newborns. The course was highly appreciated by the participants, who now will bring this new knowledge back to their centers for a more appropriate and child-centered newborn care, to reduce infant mortality even further in Vietnam.
