Over 2,400 babies delivered on New Year’s Day in Ghana – UNICEF

The United Nations Children`s Fund (UNICEF) says approximately 2, 400 babies were born on New Year`s Day in Ghana which accounts for about 0.6% of the estimated 386,000 babies born globally on that day.

In a statement issued by UNICEF, it said half of these births took place in nine countries including India, China, Nigeria and the US.

The statement noted that while many of these babies will survive, some will not make it past their first day, citing 2016 where 2,000 children died within the first 24 hours.

The UNICEF Representative in Ghana, Rushnan Murtaza said the organization has resolved to make every child survive through the year, this will be done through low cost solutions.

New Babies
UNICEF will this month launch a global campaign dubbed ‘Every Child Alive’, to demand quality health care solutions for every mother and their new born.

These include a steady supply of clean water and electricity at health facilities, breastfeeding within the first hour after birth, and skin-to-skin contact between the mother and child among other things.
