RB has taken on the initiatives of sanitation and cleanliness under their umbrella to endan imminent issue. The ground-breakingprogram helps to eradicate child deaths from diarrhea. In their partnership with Save the Children RB works to prevent, control and treat the unnecessary killer.
The combination of RB’s expertise in product development and research and Save the Children’s experience of delivering life-saving work will help save thousands of young lives a year. Funded by RB, the Stop Diarrhoea programme, will for the first time fully implement the World Health Organisation and UNICEF 7-point plan to ensure comprehensive diarrhoea control.
Each year 567,000 children under-five die needlessly from diarrhoea, equivalent to 64 children every hour. In an ambitious drive to help end this, Save the Children and RB have committed to working with national governments and other partners to implement the 7 Point Plan. To improve hand washing and community sanitation, RB and 19 of their suppliers (who volunteered their time) have developed two unique products that are completely new to market.
