[Correspondence] Simplified antibiotic regimens for neonatal sepsis—AFRINEST

The two AFRINEST field trials1,2 of simplified antibiotic regimens for suspected bacterial infections in neonates and young infants successfully showed that a team of community health workers and nurses can deliver antibiotic treatment, including injectable drugs, very safely and with high coverage in the community. Thus, the investigators confirm that the home-based management of neonatal infections with antibiotics, which we first reported,3 is feasible in programme conditions. We congratulate the authors.
