Mothers and children waiting at the Bolemba healt centre
UNICEF CAR, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, UNFPA and WHO, officially launched their 2008 Mother and Child Survival Campaign.
The first stage has allowed the vaccination of approximately 700,000 reproductive aged women against Tetanus – CAR’s seventh most deadly disease. The neonatal form in particular leads to death in the vast majority of infants.
