Engagement in Child Diarrhea: Zinc/ORS Work

Published May 8th, 2015

In 2013, CHAI worked to scale up access to and usage of zinc/ORS, as the recommended treatment for diarrhea, in India, Kenya, Nigeria, and Uganda by building demand and increasing availability in both the public and private sectors. CHAI supported governments to lower the cost of zinc/ORS products. As a result of these efforts, wholesale prices have reduced by approximately 60 percent. CHAI is working to accelerate the usage of these products in several African countries and in India.
