World Prematurity Day resources

In this section, we are happy to provide you with plenty of materials for your World Prematurity Day activities for free download.

Guidelines for the use of the materials

You may use the material free of charge. Providing the toolkit and graphic material is the work of many creative individuals and involves time and expenses for EFCNI. Therefore, we call on you to please note the following rules for the appropriate use of the material:

Guidelines for the use of World Prematurity Day templates

  • Feel free to support your partner organisations or hospitals with the poster template and/or Facebook cover
  • Do not alter the image – it is what makes us recognizable around the world
  • Feel free to add the logos and names of your individual supporters and partners but do not remove or change the EFCNI logo
  • Use any World Prematurity Day material we offer only for raising awareness, for fundraising and information. Do NOT use the material for marketing or sales purposes of products or services
  • Do not alter the layout and design of the templates (e.g. colour, type, composition)

10 years of World Prematurity Day Badge

Last year, in 2018, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of World Prematurity Day. The 10 Years of World Prematurity Day Badge can be placed on the World Prematurity Day logo. The icon is a png file that can be put separately on the existing logo – since every organisation uses the logo in their language, this is an option to customise the respective logos for the anniversary. Click here to see an example where to place the icon on the World Prematurity Day logo.
