Globally, neonatal and perinatal mortality has been declining over the years, yet many countries are failing to make progress to attain the Millennium Development Goals. Each year, 2.9 million newborns die in the first week of life and the highest neonatal mortality rates and rates of stillbirth are seen in sub-Saharan Africa, followed by Asia and Latin America, where most of the deliveries take place at home. Despite limited resources and multiple challenges including lack of human resources, competing priorities and lack of consensus on what needs to be done, there is much effort taking place to achieve these goals. This paper underscores the evidence-based research published during the last decade on neonatal interventions and strategies for scaling up these interventions in developing countries.
