Our colleague, Rohit Ramchandani, is just back from the Annual Meeting on the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) where he’d been invited to give a presentation on “Transitioning co-packaged ORS and Zinc to scale following Model EML Listing”. This invitation was prompted following the success of our application to WHO to modify their Model Essential Medicines to recommend that ORS and Zinc are co-packaged (see Success: WHO adds co-packaged ORS and Zinc to its Essential Medicines List).

We thank the ASTMH for giving space for such an important current topic.

[Addendum 19-Jan-2022. The ORS/Zinc Co-pack Alliance (ORSZCA) was launched today to accelerate the transition to co-packaged ORS and Zinc. See ORSZCA Launch]
