Over 10,000 newborns die from neonatal tetanus in the Americas each year, yet this disease is preventable. This manual emphasizes enhanced surveillance for the identification and monitoring of high-risk areas and the targeting of special immunization of women of childbearing age. Detailed criteria for surveillance,case investigation, and data analysis are given, along with vaccination schedules and suggested ways of improving vaccine coverage levels. The manual also provides background information on the epidemiology and clinical features of neonatal tetanus, plus sample forms to be used for surveillance, reporting, and investigation of cases.

This manual is a step-by-step guide for setting up and carrying out neonatal tetanus elimination activities for health personnel involved in any area of this effort.
