Vygon celebrates the World Prematurity Day!
Initiated by our partner – the European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI), the World Prematurity Day – on Nov. 17th – is one of the most important days in the year to raise awareness of the challenges and burden of preterm birth globally.
EFCNI is the first pan-European organization and network to represent the interests of preterm and newborn infants and their families. It gathers together parents, healthcare experts from different disciplines and scientists with the common goal of improving long-term health of preterm and newborn children. Its vision is to ensure the best start in life for every baby. With its activities, EFCNI wants 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.
Vygon shares these values and does its best to offer innovative medical devices, designed for premature infants, in order to help healthcare professionals to give the best possible care. That is why Vygon decided to be EFCNI bronze partner and to actively celebrate the World Prematurity Day. Backed by their experience in Neonatology, our teams create the event in several countries (France, USA, UK, Australia, Nigeria, Mexico, Taïwan, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, Taiwan, Thailand, South Africa, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Qatar…). This day will be the occasion to exchange with parents and medical staff about the challenges of the prematurity through parents’ testimonies, exhibition of our medical devices so that parents can manipulate them, videos showing how they are manufactured, etc.
Vygon’s values – involvement, integrity, open-mindedness, research improvement and respect – are at the heart of the medical devices manufacture. Every day, babies are growing up in good conditions thanks to the love of their parents and families, the care of medical staff and the innovative aspect of medical devices. Let’s celebrate them as well as all stakeholders in this care!
