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.

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile devices as well as laptops and desktops using a visual drag-and-drop application – and eForms-buildi...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
