Guyana Help The Kids (GHTK) is a registered Canadian charity with the goal of decreasing the neonatal and infant mortality in developing countries, particularly in Guyana. They aim to achieve this goal through sustainable changes within the healthcare sector. Their major focus has been to provide comprehensive education to local physicians, nurses and other allied healthcare professionals. In addition, they have been assisting with the procurement of specialized equipment to elevate the level of neonatal care.

The initial part of this project has been focused at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) with the opening of a new neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), an innovative pediatric residency program and neonatal nursing program. They have been successful in decreasing the neonatal mortality at GPHC by forty percent in our first year. The shared vision with the Ministry of Health in Guyana is to expand this program to the regional hospitals in New Amsterdam, Linden, Suddie and West Demerara. They have started by opening two new Neonatal Intensive Care Units at Linden and New Amsterdam this year.
