In Southeast Asia, around 7,400 newborn deaths occur every day (UN), 25% are caused by birth asphyxia or lack of breathing. In low-resource settings, rural health workers may receive initial training in resuscitation techniques, but these skills are not maintained. In Cambodia, Angkor Hospital for Children has developed a low-cost solution to this problem. The Baby Resuscitation Training (BaRT) system is a reliable and intuitive system that supports health workers to maintain their life-saving skills. If BaRT proves successful, the aim is to scale it to other low-cost health settings to have a wider impact on reducing neonatal mortality.
