One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose a child. 2.6 million babies die in their first 28 days of life - most of them in their first week.
We need to change this.
Everyone should be able to get the care they need, whenever they need it, without going broke.

💪 Lovely Barua is one of the 35 women who are now part of the 100-strong team of vaccinators working in the #Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar, #Bangladesh 🇧🇩.
More and more women vaccinators are being engaged as they have easy access to the families in the camps, especially for vaccinating young adolescents girls. On average, she vaccinates 200 #children on a vaccination day.

We thank Lovely and all the vaccinators who are helping protect children from diseases like measles or diphtheria. THANK YOU!! #VaccinesWork

🤗 The #FirstEmbrace, a prolonged skin-to-skin cuddle between moms (or dads) and babies helps them stay warm and safe. It’s a simple but powerful way of improving the health of preterm and low-birth-weight #babies.

“I enjoy everything about my job, especially organising the vaccination campaigns. On those days, I start at 5 am. You have to be ready early morning, when the vaccines arrive, and up until late night to collect and update data. The biggest moment is when you compile and send out the data. That’s when I think, ‘Yes, we did it.’ I never had an ambition to be a clinician. I love the field and the challenges of #publichealth.” Dr Ariful Islam, a WHO Surveillance and Immunisation Medical Officer, often thinks of himself as a “street doctor “ because that is where you can find him, among the communities he is serving.

He first arrived in Cox’s Bazar, #Bangladesh in September 2017 to support WHO’s response to the #Rohingya crisis for the first Measles Rubella (MR) vaccination campaign that reached over 94,000 children. He also supported the second MR vaccination campaign that reached over 286,000 children and for a diphtheria vaccination campaign that targeted 318,000 children. He was once again in Cox’s Bazar to support the second diphtheria vaccination campaign to reach nearly 300,000 children, which has just concluded. 📷: WHO Bangladesh/ @intrepidframes

Every birth is unique. Some labours progress quickly, others don't. Unnecessary medical interventions should be avoided if the woman and her baby are in good condition.

Where a child lives determines his or her likelihood of surviving #cancer.
We need global action to improve the lives of children with cancer. In #Myanmar, WHO has worked with local and international partners like @stjuderesearch to promote access to and completion of treatment for all.
