Every year across the globe, 15 million babies are born too soon. Preterm birth is the leading cause of death among children under the age of five. In Uganda, 12,500 babies die every year because of preterm complications.
The Adara Group works to end preventable newborn deaths in Uganda by improving the quality and capacity of health systems, working in partnership with local champions of newborn health.
Adara is also partnering with PATH and the University of Washington to develop an incredibly simple and affordable device that helps babies breathe, when they are born with underdeveloped lungs.
