Activities - how the charity spends its money
Group B streptococcus (GBS) is the UK's commonest life-threatening infection in newborn babies. Without preventative medicine, GBS infects approximately 700 babies a year: 75 die & 40 survivors have long-term problems. Most GBS infections are preventable by offering higher-risk women antibiotics in labour. GBSS informs pregnant women and health professionals how to do this, saving tiny lives.
