Navi Mumbai: In order to improve neonatal care, the Health Department of Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) conducted a comprehensive Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) workshop. The workshop, titled "Basic Neonatal Resuscitation Program First Golden Minute Project," was held over a span of two days at Rajmata Jijau Hospital Airoli.

In a country where the mortality rate due to Birth Asphyxia stands at over 20%, the significance of timely intervention during the critical first minute after birth cannot be overstated. The NRP workshop aimed to address this alarming statistic by training medical personnel to deliver essential resuscitation techniques to newborns in need. It is estimated that 10 out of every 100 newborns require resuscitation, and through this workshop, a total of 62 trainees have been empowered to administer these lifesaving measures.
