The partnership is now celebrating its twelfth successful year and everything that we have been able to achieve together. During that time, mums and babies around the world have helped Pampers and Unicef to eliminate Maternal and Newborn Tetanus in 20 countries and protected an over half a million newborn babies. With only 18 countries left, we’re halfway towards our goal of global elimination! However, there are still lots to be done, with 53 million women worldwide at risk from this fatal yet preventable disease and the life of a newborn claimed every 15 minutes.
Will Zeck, Head of the Maternal, Newborn and Adolescent Unit at UNICEF commented:
“Thanks to the support of Pampers and parents, we have been able to tick yet another country off our list of nations threatened by MNT. Although this disease is one of the most painful ways for a baby to die, it is easily preventable. Our challenge is to ensure the women living in poor and remote communities across the globe have access to this life saving vaccine, to ensure it can’t be passed onto their newborns. Just one Pampers UNICEF pack helps us do this – it helps us save lives.”
In 2017 our campaign is celebrating amazing babies who by just wearing Pampers have helped us transform the lives of mums and babies around the world. From October to December, every time a specially branded pack of Pampers is purchased Pampers will donate the cost of one vaccine to help Unicef in the fight against Maternal and Newborn Tetanus.
Together the Pampers and Unicef partnership can continue to help transform lives around the world.
