In honour of the million babies worldwide who die each year because they are born too soon, and the 12 million more who struggle to survive, please "like" World Prematurity Day on Facebook.

Help put a face on the problem of premature birth by reading stories from around the world and sharing your own: post a story and a picture of a child, family member or friend affected by premature birth. A global map will allow you to connect with others close to home or far away.

Raise your voice for babies born too soon around the world: help spread the word by updating your Facebook status with a message on premature birth. Together we can raise awareness of this serious problem and help more babies start healthy lives.
