CFS Professor, Julia Jaekel, co-authored two chapters in the European Standards of Care for Newborn Health Report that were presented and signed at the European Parliament last week in order to improve neonatal care and follow-up across Europe.
On November 27th and 28th, the European Standards of Care for Newborn Health and the Call to Action for Newborn Health in Europe were officially launched in the European Parliament for the first time.
These pieces call upon policy makers, hospital administrators, insurers, professional societies, patient associations, and industry to work together on the implementation of the standards at a national level. Many politicians, the project´s experts and supporters, parent representatives, and key stakeholders and speakers from organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) joined the launch events and signed the Call to Action.
