  • Kiwanis Visits Lao PDR

    PDR Group in Lao

    Lao People’s Democratic Republic, a landlocked country in Southeast Asia, is a success story for The Eliminate Project. A Kiwanis International delegation recently returned from Lao PDR, where they met with local volunteers and medical experts, visited schools and observed health services, including UNICEF-led vaccination campaigns.

     

    In December 2013, the World Health Organization announced that Lao PDR had successfully eliminated maternal and neonatal tetanus. Lao PDR has come a long way since 2001, when it had one of the world's highest neonatal tetanus rates. Today, the socioeconomic conditions and the coverage of immunizations are improving. Check out photos and read about the trip. You can help eliminate the disease in the 24 countries where it still threatens. Give today at www.TheEliminateProject.org.
