Neonatal brain injury continues to be a significant problem affecting both preterm and full-term infants. Prematurity is the leading cause of death in neonates worldwide. Preterm survivors have a high risk of cerebral palsy, disability, and neurodevelopmental delay. Full-term neonates are also at risk for brain injury and subsequent delays. While perinatal events cause about one-quarter of neonatal deaths worldwide, the resulting hypoxic-ischemic neonatal encephalopathy affects 1-2 per one thousand live births in developed countries. Despite the use of therapeutic hypothermia, almost half of the babies with moderate to severe encephalopathy either die or develop severe disabilities.

The Newborn Brain Society was conceived with a comprehensive vision and mission focusing on the newborn brain. We envision a world in which all newborns have access to, and receive, optimal brain care. Our mission is to advance newborn brain care through international multidisciplinary collaboration, education, and innovation among clinicians, scientists, and parents. The society is governed by a Board of Directors and its vision and mission are maintained through the help of an advisory Steering Committee. The aforementioned objectives are fulfilled by 6 committees including the Membership, Financial, Educational, Guidelines and Publications, Communication and Networking, and Quality Improvement and Research Committees.
