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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
