Community Action to Improve Neonatal Health

While scanning through my pile of reading I found an article about Best Babies Zones in the April edition of Maternal and Child Health Journal. The concept is based on the Life Course Theory which sees development and health as an integration of life stages and the broader social context.

The pilot project is currently in three communities, and the website provides information about the actions being taken by the communities to achive the goal of giving babies the best chance in life.  Check out the website to see if any of the action steps might be good matches for your community.
