The Every Newborn action plan (ENAP) was approved by Ministers of Health from all over the world at the May 2014 World Health Assembly. It brings together the latest evidence on effective interventions for a clear roadmap to end preventable stillbirths and newborn deaths.

ENAP gives two specific targets for all countries to achieve by 2035: 1) Reduce neonatal mortality rates to 10 or fewer newborn deaths per 1,000 live births and 2) Reduce stillbirth rates to 10 or fewer stillbirths per 1,000 total births. Every Newborn also lays out an interim post-2015 goal, calling for a reduction to 12 or fewer newborn deaths and stillbirths by 2030.
