UNICEF + Pampers
Nurses administer a wide range of basic immunizations, such as measles, polio and tetanus toxoid. Though usually given on a routine basis at hospitals, the vaccines are not accessible to rural mothers because they live too far away from hospitals and have to give birth at home. (Photo: S. Bakalar)
A Karamojan mother spreads seeds on her small plot of farmland. With 82 percent of the Ugandan workforce specialized in the agricultural sector, and plenty of rich farmlands and waterways, the country relies heavily on what its land produces. Many rural Ugandans rely just as heavily on farming to provide for their own staple food needs as well. (Photo: S. Bakalar)

Health, Women + Girls
UNICEF and Pampers teamed up to provide neonatal tetanus vaccines for 100 million mothers and babies in developing nations. In 2011 SOW partnered with UNICEF and Pampers to document the impact of this initiative in Uganda.
SOW produced a video that highlighted the 1 Pack = 1 Vaccine campaign, which was featured during the plenary session at the 7th Annual Clinton Global Initiative, as well as a video that brought to life a case study performed by the Oxford Saïd School of Business.
SOW also produced a photo portfolio that documented Procter & Gamble efforts to improve health education among adolescents and UNICEF’s efforts to improve healthcare by targeting disease and malnutrition.
