The United South African Neonatal Association (USANA) was formed as a subgroup of the South African Paediatric Association to promote and facilitate collaboration between neonatal services in South Africa.

Key objectives include promoting the use of evidence-based best care practises and establishing communications between neonatal care givers in South Africa.

Additional objectives include the upholding of the rights of neonates by advocating and promoting the delivery of effective and safe perinatal and neonatal services to newborn infants according to the African Charter on the rights and Welfare of the Child (1999) and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989).

USANA holds a biennial conference to provide members with updates on core newborn topics.
