The 9 Kiwanis Clubs of Cobb County have joined forces with Kiwanis members across the globe in Project Eliminate to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. Maternal and neonatal tetanus is a painful disease that kills one baby every nine minutes, or about 160 newborns each day, or 60,000 a year and a significant number of mothers.

Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus is a global campaign in partnership with UNICEF that will save or protect millions of mothers and newborns. For more information about The Eliminate Project, visit www.TheEliminateProject.org.
