Pampers Sponsors 7 Nigerian Doctors for Overseas Training

Procter and Gamble’s Pampers brand, has announced that it is set to sponsor seven Nigerian pediatric doctors to the United States of America (USA) for observership and research scholar programs.

The program is part of a partnership between the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) and Pampers – with an objective of contributing towards improvement in the healthy development of infants and children worldwide.

Six pediatricians will benefit from the ‘observership scholarships’ while one would take part in the research program. The programs would enable these doctors travel to Cincinnati to share knowledge on medical advances and administrative innovations at the Cincinnati Children’s and other hospital institutions in the surrounding area. The beneficiaries of this program would be selected from hospitals across Nigeria through collaboration between CCHMC and PAN.

P&G West Africa’s Associate Marketing Director for Baby Care, Jaweria Ali commented on the sponsorship saying, “Pampers is committed to advancing the happy, healthy development of infants and children; this is why the brand entered into this partnership. By giving these seven Nigerian doctors the opportunity to enhance their medical expertise through the research and observership programs in CCHMC, Pampers would be helping Nigerian children have access to even better health care.”

The Head of External Relations for Procter and Gamble West Africa, Mrs. Temitope Iluyemi commented on the program saying, “As a company we are inspired by our purpose to ‘Touch and Improve lives.’

Procter and Gamble recognizes there are several challenges that face the Nigerian child today and it is focused on programs that help improve life for the Nigerian child and that contribute to the attainment of the ‘Millennium Development Goal’s.”

“This program, aimed at nurturing child health and development provides an excellent platform for the transfer of global best practices in child health care and management from CCHMC - to the benefit of the Nigerian child.” This is also just one of the ways Procter and Gamble on the platform of Pampers is helping to develop human capital in the country.”
