Sign the Petition
Sign the petition in support of Bill 226 today! Manitoba currently implements a targeted newborn CMV screening program, but legislation has been proposed that would make universal CMV screening mandatory across the province. Targeted screening is not enough as it only identifies infants with CMV-related hearing loss at birth. As a result, other cases of CMV are left undiagnosed. Universal screening is the only way to ensure that all babies with cCMV are diagnosed in a timely manner so that they can receive the care they require.
