Nearly 350,000 babies are born prematurely in the Philippines each year, accounting for about two in 10 of all babies born. This urgent health crisis faced by our newborns heeds for raising awareness of preterm birth. That’s why on November 17 of every year, the Philippines is one in commemorating World Prematurity Day.
As the country’s largest health insurance provider, PhilHealth moves a step forward in utilizing accurate data that will improve our vulnerable newborns’ care and health outcomes.
Tomorrow, at 9 AM, PhilHealth will be hosting a webinar on its official Facebook page. Together for Babies Born Too Soon: Caring for the Future highlights the virtual launch of the PhilHealth Registry of Newborns.
