Every baby requires warmth, hygiene, umbilical cord care, eye care, early and exclusive breastfeeding, and proven-effective medications and immunizations. But many babies around the world go without. The INMED Professional Qualification Course in Essential Care for Every Baby and Small Babies Helping Babies (ECEB-ECSB Master Trainer Course) is an evidence-based educational program to prepare learners to teach basic baby care techniques in low-resource locations to benefit midwives, mid-level providers, and community health workers. ECEB-ECSB can also be effectively combined with other elements of the Helping Babies Survive series, such as Helping Babies Breathe (HBB). ECEB-ECSB is an initiative of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in collaboration with the Laerdal Global Health, and Save the Children.
