Author information

Department of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.


The 1996 World Health Report highlights the global importance of infectious diseases, especially among young children, and stresses the impact of new or emerging diseases. Neonatal infections are old diseases. What is needed is a new recognition that they are important causes of morbidity and mortality and that simple interventions are available that can make a significant impact on the incidences of infection and death related to infection.
