The Children’s Medical Foundation: Neonatal intensive care unit

GO BACK TO MAP
With the aim to lower neonatal mortality rates and improve the quality of neonatal care in China, ZeShan in 2005 funded a multiyear initiative by The Children’s Medical Foundation (CMF) to establish neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in five underprivileged areas in Zhejiang province. Training was also provided to doctors and nurses. With subsequent funding from like-minded donors, CMF helped establish 15 more NICUs at various regions in China.

In April 2009, ZeShan sponsored a conference in Shanghai where representatives of 20 NICUs shared experiences and insights into neonatal care. The occasion was attended by 41 medical professionals, including representatives from the National Center for Women and Children’s Health, under the Chinese CDC, heads of neonatology and members of CMF’s China Medical Advisory Board, including Professor Gui Yonghao, who is vicepresident of Fudan University and president of the pediatrics division under the Chinese Medical Association.

This two-day event saw the establishment of a professional network that aims to facilitate further sharing and training for the CMF program participants on a regular basis. In addition to keynote presentations, group discussions were held, addressing issues including the challenges of neonatal care in different parts of China and possible solutions to these problems, and the development of a national neonatal resuscitation program.
