17 November is World Prematurity Day, a global movement to raise awareness of premature birth and the sometimes devastating impact it can have on families.
This year, Bliss is focussing on the need for high quality family-centred care for all premature babies, which puts them and their families at the heart of the care they receive.
Sadly, there are still areas of the UK where premature babies don’t get the standard of care they desperately need, due to a lack of resources, funding and staffing*, when their survival and future quality of life depends on it. Bliss champions the right of every premature baby to receive the best care, and with your help we can get closer to making this a reality.
There are lots of ways you can support World Prematurity Day 2016 and help Bliss champion quality care for all premature babies. Please check this page in the coming weeks for details about how to get involved in this year’s campaign.
