Collaboration across the Tasman
The Australian and New Zealand Neonatal Network is a collaboration of every neonatal intensive care unit in the two countries, established in 1994. Today, membership extends to every special care unit in New Zealand, an increasing membership from Australian special care units and most recently a Singaporean neonatal intensive care unit.

Every year, over 10,000 newborns in Australia and New Zealand are admitted to a neonatal intensive care or participating special care unit and meet the ANZNN registration criteria.
For babies born in 2014, this equated to:
- Over 380,000 days in the neonatal unit
- Close to 3,000,000 hours of respiratory support
- 96.0% survival to home
