Three Countries in West Africa Eliminate MNT!

Over the past few months, the World Health Organization (WHO) has announced that maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) has been validated as eliminated in Liberia, Senegal and Burkina Faso.  The reduces the number of countries in which MNT remains a public health threat to 35.  We congratulate the governments of the three aforementioned countries on their tremendous success.  This good news continues to demonstrate that programs to eliminate MNT can and do work.  The sooner that additional funding is received, the faster that other countries can implement their immunization activities and reach women of childbearing age.  With the support of generous individuals from around the globe, we can realize the day when MNT is eliminated in every country of the world.
