THE SOLUTIONS

Simple and proven tools can prevent and treat diarrhea, and integrating them achieves the greatest impact. 

THE SOLUTIONS

We can save more than half a million children’s lives from diarrheal disease each year – and protect them against the long-term harm of repeated infections – with simple, inexpensive solutions that are available today. Vaccines, ORS and zinc, WASH, breastfeeding, and innovative research work best when they work together. We need greater investments in these solutions and in integrated policies to ensure holistic protection against diarrheal disease.

A GLOBAL MOVEMENT

If we can't talk about it, we can't defeat it. Help us bring many voices together to break the poo taboo.
