Now in it’s eleventh year, the Pampers and UNICEF campaign to eliminate Maternal and Newborn Tetanus has now saved an estimated 500,000** newborn babies through the “1 pack = 1 vaccine” campaign with a vaccine reaching a mother and her baby every second. Just take a moment for those figures to sink in.
The “1 Pack = 1 Vaccine” Pampers-UNICEF campaign does exactly as it says on the tin and just by wearing Pampers, your baby can help to save lives. Every single pack of Pampers nappies or wipes sold through the campaign results in Pampers donating 1 vaccine against maternal and new born tetanus.
In the eleven years that the campagin has been running, amazing babies around the world have helped Pampers and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus in 19 countries – with only 19 more to go that’s now half way towards the goal of global elimination!
There are lots of ways that we can all support this important campaign! If you share a photo of your amazing baby with #1photo1vaccine or #PampersUNICEF, on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram – Pampers® will donate the equivalent cost of one vaccine!

This year, celebrity mum and former Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh is supporting the Pampers-UNICEF campaign. Kimberley says: “I feel hugely honoured to be supporting the Pampers-UNICEF campaign in its 11th year. As a mum to Bobby, and expecting my second child later this year, I feel great empathy with other mothers around the world who, just as I do, want nothing more than to deliver a happy, healthy baby. The reason I’m so passionate about this campaign is that mums and dads here in the UK can make a very real difference by doing nothing more than buying the Pampers that they need for their little ones. It’s phenomenal and makes me feel very proud of what we can achieve together.”
How else can you help make a difference?
As well as sharing a photo of your amazing baby, there are other ways that we can all help to work together to eliminate maternal and new born tetanus:
* 1 pack= 1 life-saving vaccine: For each purchase of a Pampers® pack with the UNICEF logo
* Donate to UNICEF: By becoming a monthly donor to UNICEF today you can join thousands of other parents who donate every month to improve the lives of these vulnerable children
