Abstract

Infections are a major cause of neonatal death in developing countries. High-quality information on the burden of early-onset neonatal sepsis and sepsis-related deaths is limited in most of these settings. Simple preventive and treatment strategies have the potential to save many newborns from sepsis-related death. Implementation of public health programs targeting newborn health will assist attainment of Millennium Development Goals of reduction in child mortality.
