“One Pack = One Vaccine” is a global initiative to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus, a preventable disease that claims the lives of approximately 128,000 infants and 30,000 mothers in less industrialized nations each year. By purchasing specially-marked packs of Pampers diapers and wipes from February 5, 2009 through May 1, 2009, consumers in the United States and Canada automatically trigger a vaccination to a pregnant woman or woman of child-bearing age in a developing nation.
Mom and actress Salma Hayek returns as the international spokesperson for the program and continued to demonstrate her commitment to the campaign on her recent trip to Sierra Leone with UNICEF, where she witnessed firsthand the vital issue of maternal and neonatal tetanus. During her trip, Salma met with local UNICEF representatives to discuss the impact of the campaign and see the dramatic reduction in annual newborn deaths, from 215,000 in 1999 to approximately 128,000 in 2004, saving 87,000 babies’ lives each year. While there is significant progress, much work has yet to be done.
Together, we can help save a life!
