Tetanus: The Infant Curse

SW Pictures LTD
Format

Summary
Every year thousands of babies die from a disease that strikes in the very first days or hours of life. Today tetanus affects only the world’s poorest and most remote communities—but it still claims the lives of about 150,000 babies every year. Poor hygiene and cultural traditions—like rubbing a mixture of soil and butter on a newly cut umbilical cord—gives the deadly bacteria the perfect opportunity to breed. We travel to Ethiopia where 14,000 babies die from tetanus every year.
