Date:5/8/2009

Model Collaboration and Mother's Day Challenge Grant Demonstrate Effectiveness of Public-Private Partnerships to Address Unmet Global Health Needs

NEW YORK, and FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Two days before Mother's Day, BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), a leading global medical technology company, announced its continued support for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) campaign to vaccinate mothers and children in developing countries against maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). Representatives from BD and UNICEF highlighted this collaboration today by ringing the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

"Observation of Mother's Day here in the U.S. is the perfect opportunity to reflect upon the toll tetanus takes on mothers and newborns in the developing world. Every day 25,000 children under the age of five die from preventable causes like tetanus," said Caryl M. Stern, President and CEO, U.S. Fund for UNICEF. "UNICEF began working with BD in 1997 to address the tetanus crisis, and since then we've made great strides toward eliminating this silent killer by vaccinating more than 64 million women and children in 37 countries. BD's recommitment to this campaign ensures that we will reach the day when zero children die from this preventable disease. I am excited that BD is challenging the public to join them in the fight to eliminate MNT."

BD pledged a $1 million cash donation over the next five years to support UNICEF's MNT activities. As the original and longest-serving corporate partner in UNICEF's MNT campaign, BD has provided more than $4 million in cash support and more than $3.7 million in product donations to the program, including more than 50 million BD SoloShot(TM) auto-disable syringes and nine million BD Uniject(TM) single-dose, non-reusable, prefilled injection devices. In addition, BD has challenged the public to join them in this effort by visiting
