Pampers e UNICEF presentano innovativi risultati nella lotta contro il tetano materno e neonatale

UNICEF e Pampers ieri hanno solennizzato la rivoluzionaria collaborazione che punta a eliminare il tetano materno e neonatale. Una malattia mortale, ma del tutto prevenibile, che miete ogni anno le vite di 58.000 neonati.

Nel corso di un evento che si è svolto presso la UNICEF House, Pampers (P&G) e UNICEF, in collaborazione con Interbrand, hanno fatto il punto su una campagna di quasi 10 anni che ha aiutato a fornire 300 milioni di dosi di vaccino antitetanico a puerpere e neonati, contribuendo a sradicare la malattia in 14 paesi. In quest'ambito è stata inoltre organizzata una tavola rotonda-dibattito a cui hanno partecipato le organizzazioni e moderata dal Dr. Holly Phillips, CBS News Medical Contributor.

"Dalla collaborazione tra UNICEF e Pampers è nata la necessaria attenzione verso una malattia precedentemente pressoché sconosciuta", ha dichiarato Gérard Bocquenet, nuovo Direttore della raccolta fondi privati e partnership di UNICEF. "Questo ci permette non solo di aiutare a proteggere milioni di donne e i loro bimbi da una malattia mortale, ma si è anche trasformato per UNICEF in una piattaforma vitale che richiama nuovi donatori su scala mondiale".

Nel corso dell'evento Pampers e UNICEF hanno attribuito molto del successo ottenuto alla valutazione strategica condivisa dai due partner in materia di missione, visione e valore del marchio: missione di UNICEF è promuovere la "sopravvivenza, la protezione e lo sviluppo dei bambini" con la visione di Pampers per quanto riguarda "l'impegno per la salute e la crescita serena di ogni piccolo".

"Grazie all'azione congiunta di UNICEF, di Pampers e delle mamme che fanno la spesa, i fondi raccolti dal noto produttore di prodotti per l'infanzia hanno già aiutato a eliminare il tetano materno e neonatale in 14 paesi in base al principio '1 confezione = 1 vaccino'; una meccanica semplice, ma efficace", ha commentato Matthew Price, vicepresidente del settore Babycare presso P&G.

Oltre a condividere il loro percorso verso il successo, Pampers e UNICEF hanno presentato una serie di cortometraggi girati durante un recente viaggio in Indonesia, per dimostrare il forte impatto ottenuto dalla campagna e promuovere la natura reciprocamente benefica della riuscita collaborazione.

"Visitare l'Indonesia con il team di Pampers e UNICEF è stata un'esperienza molto toccante", ha dichiarato Andrea Sullivan, direttore marketing di Interbrand. "La collaborazione tra Pampers e UNICEF rappresenta un esempio reale di collaborazione, in cui una delle più importanti organizzazioni non profit e la sua controparte multinazionale hanno progettato e concretizzato una partnership mondiale per trasformare la raccolta fondi destinati a una causa sociale, aumentando la consapevolezza sul problema, con risultati senza precedenti".

Questa partnership ha consentito di ottenere grandi successi, ma il tetano materno e neonatale continua a mettere in pericolo le vite di 100 milioni di mamme e dei loro neonati in 25 paesi del mondo, in particolare tra le popolazioni più povere e vulnerabili.

Informazioni sul tetano

Il tetano materno e neonatale può essere prevenuto con semplici iniezioni alle donne in gravidanza o in età fertile, proteggendo sia le mamme che i loro bambini prima della nascita in questo delicato periodo. Con la vaccinazione gli anticorpi passano dalla mamma al feto attraverso la placenta. L'Organizzazione mondiale della sanità (OMS) e l'UNICEF raccomandano la somministrazione di 3 dosi di vaccino antitetanico per garantire un'immunità a lungo termine: con 2 dosi, la protezione per la donna vaccinata dura 3 anni, mentre con 3 dosi, la protezione si estende a 5 anni e in entrambi i casi sarà trasmessa anche al bambino fino ai 2 mesi di vita.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.
