Miracle Babies CEO joins Chair Committee of Global Alliance for Newborn Care

Miracle Babies Foundation CEO and Co-Founder, Kylie Pussell is continuing to forge ahead with our organisation’s mission to improve the lives of premature and sick babies after becoming one of the newly elected members on the Chair Committee for the Global Alliance for Newborn Care (GLANCE).


GLANCE’s vision is to help ensure every baby born worldwide receives the best start in life. Their mission is to create, empower and support a global patient voice in each region of the world while taking into account the respective cultural, historical and socio-economic backgrounds and needs of families. GLANCE aspires to decrease the burden of afflicted families and their babies born too soon, too small or too sick to help them thrive beyond survival. To work towards this goal, a focus is placed on topics around female health, pregnancy and birth, newborn treatment and care as well as follow-up and continuing care.

Kylie Pussell is one of 20 international representatives from 14 countries that comprise the newly formed Chair Committee. The diverse advisory committee includes people with various cultural backgrounds, equipped with fantastic skillsets, who will support GLANCE in the next upcoming five years. The Chair Committee is an important source of knowledge, experience and advice to GLANCE and will meet once a year to discuss projects, priorities and important global topics within the maternal and newborn health arena.  Congratulations also to Dr Karen Walker from Australia, selected to the Chair Committee for her positive work with babies and families. 


This latest delegation follows our announcement last year that Kylie had become a Founding Member of GLANCE following her trip to Munich, Germany to be part of the first GLANCE Founding Committee meeting in July 2019.

"I am very honoured to be part of this collaboration with global parent representatives and clinicians on working together to better support and improve outcomes for premature and sick babies and their families in Australia and across the globe.   This is an amazing opportunity to improve the care for babies and their families worldwide." said Kylie.

Glance is a transnational organisation, founded and led by the European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI). GLANCE consists of a worldwide network of parent- and patient organisations.  To find out more visit their website by clicking HERE.
