Supporting Happy, Healthy Babies Around The World

Pampers-UNICEF: One act to save a life

Through our partnership with UNICEF, Pampers is helping to eliminate maternal & newborn tetanus (MNT), a disease that needlessly claims the lives of 58,000 newborn babies every year which is the equivalent of one life every 9 minutes. MNT affects families in the poorest areas of the world and it occurs when newborns are infected as a direct result of unhygienic birthing practices, such as cutting the umbilical cord with un-sterile instruments. Once newborn tetanus has been contracted there is no real cure and, in rural areas of developing countries, almost all infants that are infected with tetanus die - yet this disease can be easily prevented through a simple vaccine. Now in its 9th year, with your help the Pampers-UNICEF “1 pack = 1 vaccine” campaign has already achieved remarkable results:
• 300 million vaccines donated
• Helping protect 100 million women and their newborns
• Pampers funding has helped eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus in 15 countries
Pampers and UNICEF, together with other partners, are now working in every single country where MNT is still a threat, helping to protect the lives of every single newborn baby still at risk.

Infant health programs around the world

• Since 2004 our Nurturing Children’s Development partnership with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Centre has helped train over 30 doctors from China, Pakistan, Brazil, Mexico and Nigeria, helping improve medical care service for over 1 million babies around the world
• Nearly 2 million families have been reached through Pampers mobile clinics with healthcare services and medical checks in parts of Africa and Asia
These are just some examples of the things we are doing but we know we have much more to do, so we’re not stopping here.
