Get free access to our trial results and associated learning

Everything ColaLife is learning and designing is available for free to other organisations. We are following an open source methodology to share our findings so that we can have as big an impact as possible, as quickly as possible.

ColaLife’s approach for global impact is to influence the strategies of the existing big players in child health, including national governments, manufacturers and NGOs. We aim to generate and share robust, credible evidence, and innovative and tested designs and approaches, to reduce child mortality.

ColaLife could not grow quickly enough to have the impact we envision. Our strategy is to stay small, flexible and innovative – to act as a catalyst to others – rather than to grow ourselves. Growing an organisation takes time and resources. We believe that all the organisations are already in place to do what needs to be done. The policy makers, regulators, public health practitioners, national and international NGOs, funders, manufacturers and distributors are all in place in all countries, they just need to be supported to transform access to ORS and Zinc for the treatment of diarrhoea.

Many of these players are influenced by what is published in peer-reviewed journals, so this will be a key dissemination channel for us to use. However, this process can take time to get results out. This open access initiative will allow organisations to use our results straight away, as needed, ahead of peer-review journal publication.

Where necessary, Rohit, Jane and I will also be available to support those seeking to apply ColaLife’s learning in their own circumstances, and provide additional detail and support as required.
