MTRH today joined the world in marking the World Prematurity Day. The global theme for this year’s World Prematurity Day is – Small actions, big impact: Immediate skin-to-skin care for every baby everywhere.
On this day, people come together to encourage research related to the concerns of preterm birth and help in addressing them with innovative approaches.
MTRH has the best equipped and staffed public Neonatal Baby Unit (NBU) and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Kenya with 60% of babies admitted being pre-term babies.
The day began with a sensitization walk through Eldoret Town culminating at the Riley Mother & Baby Hospital (RMBH) where mothers who previously had pre-term babies gave testimonies to encourage other mothers accordingly.
