Newborn Screening Reference Center
The implementation of expanded newborn screening in December 2014 provided opportunity for identification of more babies with life-threatening inherited conditions and timely initiation of appropriate management and care. This early diagnosis and management impact greatly on helping these affected babies live healthier lives.
There is no doubt that the active participation, support and dedication of our program partners will make the vision of saving all babies from mental retardation and death a genuine victory.
We have achieved a lot since the inception of the program in 1996. Let our efforts not end here as there will always be better ways to improve the newborn health care system of the country. Let us work together and share more celebrations of saved lives!
In this year’s celebration of the Newborn Screening Awareness Week, help us in our efforts to let the general public know about the benefits of newborn screening for the newborns and their families from October 1-7, 2015.
Help spread the word about this celebration either through the 15sec and 30sec radio commercials for your local radio stations or online by sharing the links to our brochures and posters so your health facilities can print them.
