World Prematurity Day is on the 17th of November each year.
World Prematurity Day is held every year to raise awareness of preterm birth and the problem of preterm babies. About 15 million babies are born preterm every year, one in 10 babies world wide. About one million preterm babies die every year due to their poor health conditions.
The first World Prematurity Day was held in 2008, and we celebrate preterm babies every year on the 17th of November since 2011.
