With the launch of ORSZCA complete, we have moved on to the ORSZCA work plan. In our discussions so far with UNICEF, would-be donors and partners, the most frequently asked question, that no one can answer, is “What is the current status of ORS and Zinc across LMICs?”:

  • Where does Zinc have “over the counter” status?
  • Which countries are using ORS/Zinc co-packs?
  • Which countries have co-packaged ORS/Zinc on their Essential Medicines List?
  • Co-pack pricing, availability, and so on

Working together, we, the ORSZCA Network, can bring this information together for everyone to see and enable strategic planning to help ensure that the new WHO co-packaging recommendation is implemented on the front line, and save hundreds of thousands of lives.

To enable this, we have developed and piloted an online questionnaire (in French and English) to gather this information from each country. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete. You do not have to know the answer to every question; our aim is to quickly gather insights from the information you have at your fingertips. We hope to receive multiple questionnaires from each country.

The information contained in submitted questionnaires will be anonymised and published as country summaries on the ORSZCA website here: orszco-pack.org/orsz-status

The launch on 19-Jan-22 was a great success and once again we wish to thank the Child Health Task Force for hosting the event. More than 200 people registered for the event and around 75 people attended. All 200 registrants were sent a link to a recording of the launch. The launch was rich in content with six international speakers and panellists. This content has been curated here: orszco-pack.org/launch – with key points and transcripts in both French and English.

We look forward to receiving your questionnaires and sharing the information back to you.
