This study investigate the impact of two umbilical cord cleansing regimens on neonatal morality and morbidity in a rural region in the Sylhet District of Bangladesh. The study used  data from a previously performed community-based cluster-randomized trail. Community health workers checked the newborns for the first nine days of life for infections. The authors found that identifying and following up with high-risk mothers and newborns along with clean cord care can decrease the rate of neonatal infections and deaths.
