Celebrate World Prematurity Day on 17 November

15 million babies are born preterm around the world - that's 1 in 10. More than 1 million babies die before their first birthday due to complications from preterm birth, and many of those who do survive face a lifetime of disability.

November 17 is World Prematurity Day when we focus everyone’s attention on the global problem of premature birth. Join us in raising awareness.
