THE NUMBERS ALONE ARE OUR REASON "WHY"
How We Help
We designed the ORTube to help families and health workers easily measure exact proportions of salt and sugar - key elements needed to prepare oral rehydration solution (ORS). This is a game changer as oral rehydration is known to reduce diarrheal mortality by up to 93%! We are partnering with Omni Med, a community health organization in the Mukono District of Uganda, and in this pilot with Omni Med, we are distributing ORTubes and training community health workers.
Concurrently, we are conducting a longitudinal study on the ORTube’s viability and impact in the Mukono District. Based on the results, we hope to scale production and distribution of ORTube. Learning from this pilot will help us in our path to develop further simple solutions for global health challenges.
