Surveillance of tetanus in the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region consists of facility-based routine monthly reports of total tetanus and neonatal tetanus cases and deaths. Monitoring the proportion of infants who received the third dose of tetanus toxoid-containing vaccine (DPT3) and the proportion of pregnant women who received at least two doses of tetanus toxoid-containing vaccine (TT2+), as well as protection at birth, is followed in countries of the Region.
