UENPS – Union of European Neonatal & Perinatal Societies

The mission of UENPS is to improve healthcare in the neonatal and perinatal medicine in the European countries. Main goals of UENPS are to improve quality in perinatal and neonatal care by integrating, coordinating and adding national and scientific societies’ efforts, to promote the knowledge of the perinatal indicators and to develop recommendations, guidelines, training of the healthcare providers and any other tool to achieve the best healthcare for every newborn and surveillance of neonatal rights wherever they are born. Following on UENPS’ mission, a division named “UENPS Hall of Knowledge” has been established in 2019. Its aim is to gather all experiences and cultural activities developed throughout the years and offer a wider educational approach to the hot topics of neonatology.
