Despite being easily prevented by a simple vaccine, Maternal and Newborn Tetanus continues to claim the life of a baby every nine minutes.
UNICEF and Pampers' 1 pack = 1 vaccine campaign is helping to protect 100 million women and their babies from this disease. Thanks to this year’s campaign, we will be able to protect even more.
These photos, taken in a remote area of the Papua region, Indonesia, show some of the women and their babies that have benefitted from the campaign. To find out more and support the campaign, visit the Pampers website.
