Project idea (in English)

Development of cooperation aimed towards Human Milk Banks creation in Polish-Ukrainian frontier areas. The objective of the project is to supply high risk newborns, first of all very low birth weight (VLBW) infants with donors' human milk. Mothers who deliver preterm as well as by cesarean section often cannot provide ammount of breast milk sufficient for their babies’ feeding. There are no human milk banks neither in Ukraine nor in Polish frontier areas at present. Rzeszow neonatology unit as well as Department of Pediatrics and neonatology of Lviv national Medical Ubniversity together with Lviv City Children’s Hospital are preparing for creation of such milk banks. Transborder cooperation will enable to get access to the appropriate technology ensuring safety of donor’s milk consumption as well as provide the possibility to exchange experience between centers and operate HMB in the optimal way. The project will enable high risk newborns to be fed exclusively with human milk fortified individually which will contribute to the decrease of their morbidity,
