About Kit Tarka Foundation

Kit Tarka Foundation is a small yet ambitious charity with a mission to prevent newborn baby deaths through research and education. Our initial focus is on neonatal herpes (the cold sore virus in babies) but we expect to expand our activity to other causes of newborn mortality in future years. 

Neonatal herpes is thought to be the cause of death for one baby every week in the UK but awareness is very low so it often goes undiagnosed and untreated with tragic consequences. We work to achieve our mission through funding relevant research and developing training and education programmes for medical professionals and the general public.
