BORNE: Translating Research into Healthy New Life
1.1 million babies die from the complications of premature birth every year.
It’s time to do something about it.
Introducing Borne, the wonderful new medical research initiative we proud to be supporting at KX.
A collaboration, led by Professor Mark Johnson, between Chelsea & Westminster Health Charity and the world class maternity team at Chelsea & Westminster hospital, Borne’s aim is to translate ground-breaking research to make pregnancy and childbirth safer for mothers and their babies, improving lifelong health for both.
Borne is already making a difference. 56,000 babies are born prematurely in the UK each year. 12% of babies in the UK are born too soon. Babies who do survive face the risk of living with brain damage and life-long disability.
Borne’s research will be used to improve the lives and health of babies across the world, through actionable programs already underway with existing health and aid organisations on the ground globally.
This admirable team is one we are dedicated to support, and are proud be a founding dinner partner for their first fundraising dinner, an event critical to provide supportive funds to the initiative.
Borne’s goal is to prevent disability and death in childbirth and create lifelong health for mothers and babies. It’s to join forces and support the critical research needed to start making a difference.
