Adapting the Demand Generation Implementation Kit: Improving Community Access to Amoxicillin Dispersible Tablets and Co-Pack ORS and Zinc through Accredited Drug Dispensing Outlets in Tanzania

National data shows that malaria, diarrhea and pneumonia are the major causes of mortality in Tanzania among children under five. As part of the child survival call to action, the government of Tanzania has committed to prioritizing child health and reducing child mortality to 20 deaths per 1,000 live births by 2035. This commitment includes a specific focus on ending preventable deaths from pneumonia and diarrhea.

This case study outlines a demand generation project in Tanzania designed by Pharmaceutical Society of Tanzania (PST) to improve access to new products – amoxicillin dispersible tablets and co-pack oral rehydration salt and zinc respectively – to treat childhood pneumonia and diarrhea.
