Résumé The WHO technical specifications of Neonatal Resuscitation Devices was developed under the framework of the World Health Assembly Resolution WHA66.7, (5) which is at the foundation of the United Nations Commission on Life-Saving Commodities (UNCLSC) for Women and Children (Annex 10). The mandate of the UNCLSC is to promote and assure the availability of 13 safe, quality commodities, which include resuscitation devices. The United Nations Commission on Life-Saving Commodities (UNCLSC), launched in 2012, defined 13 health products to be available and used appropriately to end preventable deaths of woman and children. One of those 13 products is the neonatal resuscitator, an indispensable medical device to save newborns from asphyxia at birth. This document is part of the work led by WHO to ensure availability of good quality, affordable neonatal resuscitators in every place where a child is born, along with trained health-care workers, in order to help babies breathe and save their lives. This document is a guide for the selection and procurement of neonatal resuscitators, describing the technical specifications as well as providing guidance for correct use. Neonatal mortality represents approximately 44% of under-5 child deaths, of which one quarter of overall neonatal deaths (around 700 000) is attributed to birth asphyxia, defined as the failure to initiate and sustain breathing at birth. Effective neonatal resuscitation; immediate care, including thorough drying, suction and stimulation after assessment; and positive-pressure ventilation, if needed, can prevent a high number of neonatal deaths
