Maternal and Newborn Tetanus

This topic may not be hot on your list of things to think about, especially at this time of year when the shops are stuffed full of decadent Christmas goodies, but if you have a baby or toddler still in nappies, give me two mins of your time…

Each year from October to December, every time a specially branded pack of Pampers is purchased or someone shares a photo of their own amazing baby on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #1photo1vaccine or #PampersUnicef, Pampers will donate the cost of one vaccine to help Unicef in the fight against maternal and newborn tetanus.

They are doing an amazing job – Since 2006, both have worked together –alongside other partners as well – to reduce MNT from 128,000 to 34,000 a year – that’s a 73% reduction. Furthermore, over half a million newborns have been saved from MNT, with Equatorial Guinea named as the 20th country in which Pampers has helped UNICEF eliminate the disease.

So can we keep this good work going to reduce MNT further, as there are currently 53 million women across 18 countries where MNT remains a threat? Why not buy Pampers nappies with the UNICEF logo between now and 31st December and post your gorgeous baby pics, using the power of social media for a good cause!
