Akhil Maheshwari (Baltimore, USA), with help from Prof. Dr. Minesh Khashu (UK), approached renowned clinicians and social leaders from all over the world to develop a global organization focused on the care of newborn infants. Dr. Khashu later left the organization for personal reasons.

Dr. Maheshwari has stayed on as the Founding Chairman. Our organization is now honored to have three highly-renowned new Chairmen, in alphabetical order, Drs. Waldemar Carlo (USA), Kei Lui (Australia), and Horacio Osiovich (Canada).

Our board of directors (last names in alphabetical order) includes Drs. Jargalsaikhan Badarch (Mongolia), Giuseppe Buonocore (Italy), Wally Carlo (USA), Bob Christensen (USA), Alvaro Dendi (Uruguay), Kamlesh Jha (USA), Pascal Lavoie (Canada), Sundos Jaber Khuder (Iraq), Ashok Kumar (India), Rangasamy Ramanathan (USA), Mohd. Mozibur Rahman (Bangladesh), Zakariya al Salaam (KSA), Guilerme M. Sant'Anna (Brazil), Bob Schelonka (USA), and Rachana Singh (USA). The organization is growing and is now represented in more than 120 countries. Please click below for more information.

Our future, anywhere in the world, depends on how well we take care of our newborn and young infants. Health care professionals can not do this alone. We need a ‘social movement’ to bring together families, medical professionals, charities, government agencies, policy makers, and every  member of our society whose heart beats for babies.

We are setting up core teams to provide local leadership with a global vision. We will set priorities for research, quality improvement, and for education and training. We will have both virtual and in-person meetings for effective communication. We have also developed a high-quality journal for effective communication and are planning our first global meeting in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, in February 2023.
