In Brief: Health ministry to target tetanus

The Ministry of Health hopes to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of tetanus by 2010, health officials said on Tuesday. Svay Sarath, vice director of the ministry’s national programme for preventive medicine, said only about half of pregnant women are vaccinated for tetanus as a result of lack of awareness and limited access in rural areas. Paou Linar, head of child and maternal health at the Phnom Penh Health Department, appealed for “all women aged 15 to 45 to get their tetanus vaccine on time so that their children will have good health”.
