PARIS, France, 28 September 2009 – UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and Grammy-winning world music artist Angélique Kidjo has launched ‘Give the Gift of Life’, a new campaign with Pampers to help eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) by 2012.

At the campaign kick-off here, Ms. Kidjo debuted ‘You Can Count on Me’, a song she has composed for the campaign. From October through December of this year, anyone can join the global effort to eliminate MNT by simply downloading the song for free.

For every download, Pampers will make a donation in support of UNICEF’s tetanus vaccination activities for women of childbearing age and newborn babies.
