DAZT PROJECT

The Diarrhea Alleviation through Zinc and ORS Therapy (DAZT) Project is a three-year initiative being implemented by FHI Solutions (formerly AED-ARTS) in partnership with Micronutrient Initiative, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. FHI Solutions is a sub-grantee of the US Fund for UNICEF.

 

Diarrheal disease is one of the leading causes of illness and death among children worldwide. Zinc and oral rehydration salts (ORS) have been endorsed by the World Health Organization and UNICEF and local health authorities, as the leading treatment and preventative-tools for childhood diarrhea.

 

The project’s primary purpose is to reduce the burden of diarrhea on child health and increase child survival in two states in India—Gujarat.
