Keeping children strong... What could be more important?


Stops diarrhoea. Restores strength.

We’re here to help you get the word out.

Diarrhoeal diseases are the second-leading cause of death of children under the age of 5.
The internationally recommended way to treat childhood diarrhoea is to start with zinc and
oral rehydration salts (ORS)
. Together, Zinc+ORS are proven to stop diarrhoea, restore
strength, and even save lives. Yet, only a fraction of children who need treatment
are receiving it. We've created free and adaptable resources to assist key
stakeholders — from manufacturers and suppliers, to NGOs,
local governments and global health partners —
in their efforts to save lives by promoting
use of these lifesaving products.

How to Get the Most Out of These Tools

By using and adapting the resources we've created and tested, you can help protect children from the dangers of dying from diarrhoeal diseases. We want you to be as effective as possible in selling your Zinc+ORS products or educating mothers about why they should use these products. Here’s a quick video to get you started.

Make These Resources Your Own

We want you to translate, customize, and adapt these resources so they can be the most help to you and your work. You might want to:

  • Add local product shots and logos of your organization.
  • Consider differences in:
    • Language, customs and strategy
    • Availability of product types and dosing
      (syrups vs tablets; 10mg vs 20 mg, and so on).

And if you show us what you've done, we can post it for others to see as an example of how they can adapt these tools themselves!
