About Us

Since its founding, the Newborn Foundation | Coalition has accelerated the pace of early detection and intervention for some of the world’s most treatable newborn health conditions, while supporting innovations in diagnoses and treatments for the top killers of newborns - from the most common conditions to the elusive and rare.

Co-founded by recognized health policy experts and the mother of a baby diagnosed at 48 hours old with congenital heart disease, the Foundation is the only international organization of its kind solely focused on leveraging health IT and technology innovation to improve outcomes and reduce disparities for the newest, most vulnerable citizens. The Newborn Foundation has vast domestic and international footprint that has already had a measurable impact on newborn health in more than 30 U.S. states and five nations around the globe.

As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Newborn Foundation continues to be recognized for the development of groundbreaking tech-based pilot projects, accredited informational resources and open-source educational materials that directly impact early detection and interventions for the most life-threatening newborn health conditions. As a 501(c)(4) sister organization, the Newborn Coalition is recognized as an advocacy and policy resource for healthcare providers, partner NGOs and governmental health agencies. The Newborn Foundation | Coalition works in collaboration with the clinical community, industry and public health worldwide to craft and advance policies that directly impact newborn health.
