About Stop Diarrhoea Initiative
Stop Diarrhoea Initiative is a signature programme of Save the Children, in partnership with Reckitt Benckiser. The programme was envisaged to contribute to RB and Save the Children’s global ambition of removing diarrhoea as a top five leading cause of death amongst children by 2020. In line with the Save the Children’s Theory of Change, the programme will: test the effectiveness and efficacy of the WHO/UNICEF 7 point plan; collate evidence to demonstrate proof of concept and value for money, and advocate for the state and national government and its partners to replicate and scale up the approach nationally.
