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 intervention 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.

Unang Yakap Campaign

The Unang Yakap campaign seeks to engage national and local sectors, public and private health sectors, individuals and organizations, mothers, fathers and families, to embrace the Essential Newborn Care Protocol to ensure a bright and healthy future for our newborns.
