EFCNI - European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants

For the best start in life

The European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI) is the first pan-European organisation and network to represent the interests of preterm and newborn infants and their families.

We bring together parents, healthcare experts from different disciplines, and scientists with the common goal of improving long-term health of preterm and newborn children. Our vision is to ensure the best start in life for every baby.

With our activities we want to reduce preterm birth rates, ensure the best possible treatment, care, and support and to improve the long-term health of preterm infants and newborns with illnesses.

Please have a look at our European Standards of Care for Newborn Health project and the standards in this field, to learn more about how they take the complexity of this topic into consideration.
