The International Society for Evidence-Based Neonatology (EBNEO) is a non-profit organisation that nourishes a vision that all neonatal care should be firmly built on best available evidence. The vision includes as short a passage from research-based knowledge to implementation in neonatal care (translation), thereby improving survival, decreasing morbidities and promoting long-lasting health for newborn infants. Memberships are open for individuals and institutions from all around the world.

The International Society for Evidence-Based Neonatology is a registered non-profit organisation in Sweden.
The organisation / fiscal number is 802493-2538.

The overall goals are:

  • to provide an international forum to communicate and support evidence-based medicine for neonatal care in a global context
  • to provide an interactive forum for the critical evaluation of the literature
  • to provide neonatal care-givers with best available knowledge by increasing the dissemination of evidence-based neonatology
  • to facilitate research projects on diagnostic procedures and interventions for important clinical outcomes
