“The causes of neonatal death globally are multifactorial and also include social factors such as education, sanitation, improved nutrition and political will. However, access to healthcare is of extreme importance and while maternal mortality rates have been improving across the globe, more needs to be done to improve the lives of newborns. Better systems are urgently needed to record these deaths and once these are in place, measures can be taken to reduce these high figures.” Professor Alan Cameron, Vice President for Clinical Quality at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) UK
