Project idea (in English)

Healthy start. Medical Universities of Poland and Ukraine partnership for improving health care of the newborn infants in the Polish-Ukrainian frontier areas. Neonatology is one of the healthcare areas which are developing very intensively last years. Knowledge exchange, common training courses and scientific and professional conferences will be of great importance for the progress in the field. Students and interns or residents exchange is another possibility for the education quality improvement. There are 2 aspects in neonatal care in Lviv region that require urgent improvement. First of all it is neonatal transport. Second subject is modern hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy treatment including therapeutic hypothermia. Polish-Ukrainian transborder cooperation will be able to provide access to the modern technology as well as to share experience between Polish and Ukrainian neonatologists. This in turn will improve the survival and quality of life of the babies that meet problems at the very beginning of their life.
