Neonatal Nurses Receive Recognition for Quality Care

Last week the Council of International Neonatal Nurses held its eighth conference in Belfast, Ireland. Designed for researchers and health professionals, the conference provided three days of networking, talks, and critical discussions about the latest global insights, trends, and clinical practices that will keep more babies alive.

During the conference three outstanding neonatal nurses were recognized for their relentless work with babies, especially in low resource settings that pose constant problems for healthy outcomes. The two overall winners were Anila Ali Bardai of Karachi, Pakistan and Christine Sammy of Kitui, Kenya. Netsayi Gowero of Blantyre, Malawi was named the runner up.

“Christine, Anila and Netasyi were selected over a number of outstanding candidates for their unwavering leadership and passion for ensuring every newborn has a chance to survive and thrive,” said COINN President Karen New.  “All three work in newborn care units in busy referral hospitals providing specialized care to underserved populations. Even in these facilities, we cannot take good care for granted; it has to be developed and defended by committed professionals.”
