The Eliminate Project
Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to combat maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) worldwide. This historic initiative, called "The Eliminate Project," will protect the lives of babies and mothers all over the globe and aims to help put an end to this cruel, centuries-old disease.
Kiwanis and IDD
In addition to partnering with UNICEF to eliminate MNT, the Kiwanis family has raised and leveraged almost $100 million to virtually eliminate iodine deficiency, the single most important preventable cause of brain damage among children, and insure children a smart start in life.
The final push to eliminate MNT global effort will require $110 million and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family.
The more than 100 million women, along with their future newborns, who will be protected through global MNT elimination efforts live in areas scarred by poverty, poor medical infrastructure or humanitarian crises. The Eliminate Project will also help pave the way for the delivery of other lifesaving services, such as clean water, nutrition and other vaccines.
