Background: Newborn health and survival depend on the care given to the newborn, although newborn care is a very essential element in reducing child mortality, it often receives less than optimum attention. Objectives: The objective of this study was (1) to develop a structured training program for ASHA workers on newborn care based on ASHA module 7 “Skills that saves lives.” (2) To compare the reported practices of ASHA workers with regard to newborn care before and after the administration of structured training program. (3) To determine the association between the practice scores and the selected demographic data, i.e., age, years of experience, and education. (4) To assess the acceptability of ASHA workers about training programs regarding newborn care. Materials and Methods: Quantitative research approach was selected with one group pre- and posttest design. A random sampling technique was used for the selection of ASHA workers. A structured practice questionnaire on newborn care was prepared to assess the practices of ASHA workers and a structured opinionnaire to assess the acceptability of the training program. Result: The findings revealed that the mean of posttest scores (25.6) was higher than the mean of pretest scores (14.5) with a mean difference of 11.1. There was no association between practice scores and selected demographic variables, i.e., age, years of experience, and educational status of ASHA workers. Conclusion: The structured training program on newborn care was effective in improving the practices of ASHA workers.
