We are a globally-active, non-profit, registered 501(c)(3) organization focused on newborn health, seeking to enhance newborn health. We will support relevant research; try to estimate the burden of specific diseases and understand risk-factors (epidemiology); train healthcare workers; and seek social engagement. We need to do this because despite all the scientific progress and social changes over the last two decades, death rates in infants still remain similar to 58-60 years old adults. But, losing a life in infancy is different - we lose it in its entirety, with all its potential! All adults are welcome to join us - we are not limited to neonatologists alone.
To navigate the website, the index page with the list of contents is useful. Here are a few details that might also be useful. The first few pages focus on the background of the organization, and our goals, aims, and objectives. The index page must have opened up when you had affectionately clicked to wake the baby up. If you did not want to interrupt the sleep and had just clicked on the link lower down, the index again must have opened. On that page, at least to some of us, the longer buttons remind of index fingers pointing in specific directions. The smaller buttons are the other digits, folded to grasp important information. But we do confess that not everyone even in our team agrees with this very 'thoughtful' interpretation.
Our logo is not a traditional line figure. However, in our discussions, we have all emotionally identified with this piece of infant-like art. Please read its message by clicking here or on the button above this text. Please do - we really want to convince you.
On the top of every page in this website, there is a tiny logo baby surrounded by a few useful links. Many mobile phones show 3 horizontal bars on the top right that can also help in navigation. Most parts of this website can also be seen in 6 languages other than English. We currently have medical and non-medical members in more than 120 countries and several thousand are joining in alliances.
A second set of pages highlights the activities in the GNS, including the development of consensus statements, ongoing research programs, identification of research needs, advocacy, quality improvement efforts, education/training, important scientific events, and news and blogs. In addition, a section provides summaries of the latest, most important findings in 18 key areas in neonatology These publications are linked to the US library of medicine website, PubMed.
We have many different fora for inter-personal interaction. Most members find the account on the cloud-based app, the Telegram, as the most convenient way to connect. It does not have any numerical or regional/legal restrictions. There is also a chat page within this website and on Facebook. You can also send us an email on the address below.
We have a creative corner where members have contributed with poetry and artwork. Newborn care definitely goes beyond scientific measurements.
Our aim is to reduce infant morbidity and mortality. To do this, we need help from everyone, either from a medical or a different background, who cares for babies. You are reading this page, and so very obviously, you are one of them. So, please join us! There are no financial charges and your details will not be shared with anyone. To join, you could just stay right here and continue to admire our logo baby, and a form should pop-up in about 30 seconds! However, if the security settings on your phone/computer do not permit this, please find the registration page either by nudging our logo baby just above the text or by clicking here.
To return to the home page or the table of contents, all we have to do is to click the links near the little baby on the top of all pages. We realize that when we are looking for a home (page) or options (table of contents), many babies are too! It reminds us that caring for babies goes beyond medicine. We need a truly global organization where we can connect and discuss.
For any questions, please email us: email@example.com.
