Samenvatting

Tropical science, as it relates to developing countries, must address as a priority those
problems whose solutions would contribute to the urgent reductions needed in neonatal and infant mortality. Patrick van Rheenen made a landmark contribution to this effort through his research on the timing of umbilical cord clamping in low resource settings. His work has systematically established the essential requirement for delayed cord clamping and demonstrated the substantial nutritional benefits this provides through reduction in anaemia to the young infant. He developed the first published Practice Guidelines for developing countries related to the timing of umbilical cord clamping.
The British Medical Journal correspondence on this recently published work confirmed
this as a milestone in research on obstetric and paediatric practice. This research is of wide practical relevance for improving child health and nutrition in developing countries.
