Background
Healthy mothers and newborns are the foundation for a strong future in Europe. Research on the early origins of adult diseases show the vital  importance and influence of pregnancy, birth and the first days in life for an individual’s future health and the development of chronic illnesses.
Every year, approximately 500,000 children are born premature in  Europe – one baby in ten. These children meanwhile represent Europe’s largest child patient group and their number is steadily increasing. In many cases, the children, as well as their families, need to cope with physical, psychological, emotional and financial challenges. In addition, the costs to healthcare systems and the wider economy are huge.
However, despite the considerable size and continuous growth of this group and the impact on the health of future European citizens, maternal and newborn health still rank low on national health agendas. Maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity rates vary widely between the countries of Europe and there is a lack of harmonized guidelines or standards to improve access to and quality of health care for mothers and newborns. A considerable number of infant deaths, chronic disabilities and health conditions linked to preterm birth could be prevented through improved prevention, treatment and care. Patient representatives, experts and a variety of stakeholders now join forces and work together on the development of common standards of care for newborn health, one further milestone to close the existing gap for maternal and newborn health in Europe. The launch of this important project will be celebrated during the exhibition opening and reception on 7 April 2014.
