Maternal and newborn tetanus (MNT), known as the “silent killer”, is a serious disease that affects muscles and nerves. The disease is passed through bacteria, and is a particular risk for babies born in unhygienic conditions.

Right now, a child dies of tetanus every nine minutes, and over 130 million women and their babies in the developing world are at risk for the disease. Without access to proper healthcare, it is fatal more than 95% of the time.

With the help of parents, Pampers and UNICEF have helped to eliminate Maternal and Newborn Tetanus in ten of the world’s poorest countries over the past 8 year. Much work needs to be done in order to reach the historic goal of eliminating newborn tetanus.

With your help, seven more Pampers and UNICEF-supported countries are expected to complete their MNT vaccination programmes by the end of the year.

How can I help?

During October – December 2013 for each Pampers UNICEF pack purchased, Pampers will donate the cost of one tetanus vaccine to support UNICEF in the fight against tetanus.

If you don’t buy nappies, you can still help by “viewing” the films below. For every “view” or “share”, Pampers will donate the cost of an additional vaccine to UNICEF. Each film depicts what a healthy start to life can bring, through the eyes of children.

You can also help by “liking” the new Pampers page on Facebook. For every “like”, Pampers will donate the cost of an additional vaccine to UNICEF.
