World Prematurity Day 2022


Globally, 15 million children a year are born too soon with 164 babies born prematurely every day in the UK. Premature birth is the leading cause of childhood death worldwide and has a lifelong impact on the babies who survive.  

World Prematurity Day, on the 17th November, raises awareness of premature birth and its devastating consequences.  During this week, we will shine a light on the impact premature birth can have on the babies born too soon, their families and our work to prevent it. By sharing the stories of families who experience premature birth and showcasing the work of researchers and scientists, we can highlight how research plays a pivotal role in the prevention of babies being #bornetoosoon 

Share the importance of this underfunded research is to help end premature birth- everywhere and forever.
