NEST 360° at the 100 & Change Finals

The NEST360° team is committed to scaling NEST across Africa to save 500,000 newborn lives every year. There has never been a better time to do this. The political resolve, both internationally and among African nations, to address neonatal deaths has never been stronger. Our team is ready to deliver an effective, affordable, and sustainable package of lifesaving newborn technologies.

We're grateful to the MacArthur Foundation for its $15 million commitment and to every member of our team, especially our leadership in Malawi, Tanzania and Nigeria and our partners at Northwestern University,

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and 3rd Stone Design. The $15 million investment from the MacArthur Foundation will allow us to take the first step toward solving this problem, as we continue to raise the money needed to end preventable newborn deaths in Africa. We believe that every newborn, everywhere deserves a safe, secure environment in which to thrive until they are ready to leave the nest.
