UNICEF stands at the ready to ensure that no newborn suffers from the excruciating pain of this disease – repeated, painful convulsions and sensitivity to light and touch – for lack of a series of immunizations that costs $1.80.
Since 2000, UNICEF and its partners have already eliminated MNT in 35 countries; 24 countries remain.
The effective – and also efficient – solution is to immunize all women of child bearing age against tetanus. Since 2000, UNICEF and its partners have already eliminated MNT in 35 countries, and only 24 countries remain.
Please join us and countless supporters here in the Midwest to help eliminate MNT by raising $3 million over the next two years, enough to reach more than one and a half million women and all of their future babies. Contact Casey Marsh by calling 312.222.9109 or email [email protected] to find out how you can get involved. Each day, approximately 160 newborns die from tetanus. Together, we have the power to make that number ZERO.
