The Essential Care for Every Baby (ECEB) Africa Regional Workshop (26-29 May 2014) provided an opportunity for dialogue with select countries implementing Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) at scale on the potential use of the ECEB learning materials to strengthen current newborn health programs and to develop a larger regional pool of ECEB Master Trainers and champions.

Workshop objectives were to:

  1. Introduce ECEB materials to select countries and discuss how these complement the existing WHO essential newborn care (ENC) curriculum.
  2. Share and discuss HBB implementation program experiences.
  3. Train ECEB Master Trainers and champions and discuss the potential integration of ECEB into HBB and/or other ENC trainings.
