Elimination of maternal and neonatal tetanus is a key area in global public health policy. Although much progress has been made in reduction of the incidence of maternal and neonatal tetanus during the past two decades, it remains a leading cause of preventable neonatal mortality in some countries.1, 2 Without medical care, mortality from neonatal tetanus is close to %, often Cited by:

Maternal and neonatal tetanus is still a substantial but preventable cause of mortality in many developing countries. Case fatality from these diseases remains high and treatment is limited by scarcity of resources and effective drug treatments.

The highest maternal mortality rates are in developing countries, where global and regional initiatives are needed to improve the systems and practices involved in maternal care and medical access. Background Despite a broad consensus that communities should be actively involved in improving their own health, evidence for the effect of community participation on specific health outcomes is limited.
