European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI)
The European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI) is the first pan-European organisation and network to represent the interests of preterm and newborn infants and their families.
Mission and Vision:
With their work they are calling attention to the growing challenge of preterm birth and its significant impact on the children, families and their society. They want to reduce the enormous health and social inequalities linked to preterm birth. To address these disparities and to increase the standard of newborn care, they initiated and are coordinating the European-wide project European Standards of Care for Newborn Health. You can find more information about EFCNI in their brochure For the best start in life.
Their work is dedicated to improving the situation of mothers and newborn infants in Europe across the full spectrum of care, promoting and protecting the right to the best start in life
