Gennaro, Susan; O'Connor, Caitlin; Marx, Megan

MCN, American Journal of Maternal Child Nursing . 42(3):132-138, May/June 2017.

An overview of the health of neonates, infants, and children around the world is presented. Issues in maximizing neonatal health are examined using the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals developed by the United Nations. In an increasingly global world where wars, climate change, civil unrest, and economic uncertainty all influence health, nurses should be aware of common global health problems for babies and children and current recommendations to enhance their health.
