Global Pharma To Launch Project Doro Combating Global Child Malnutrition
Global Pharmaceutical Relief is taking to the 2014 CPhI Worldwide conference to announce Project Doro, a private initiative fighting for healthy child development across the globe.
At just five cents for a daily serving, Sprinkles can sustain a child’s diet for a mere six dollars a year.
Continuing the work of Dr Stanley Zlotkin and the Sprinkles Global Health Initiative, Project Doro is a worldwide campaign to end the ravaging effects of childhood vitamin and mineral deficiencies through improved access to the Sprinkles micronutrient supplement.
With over a decade of research, development, and testing, Sprinkles have proven to be a highly effective and affordable means of fortifying daily meals that is easily adopted by families for daily use throughout the developing world. Packed in small individual sachets, Sprinkles are a blend of micronutrient powders for children up to five years that target the deficiencies at the heart of the world’s most prevalent health concerns.
At just five cents for a daily serving, Sprinkles can sustain a child’s diet for a mere six dollars a year. Six dollars to reduce iron deficiencies leading to anemia. Six dollars for greater Vitamin A balance improving resistance to infectious disease. Six dollars to increase zinc levels to swiftly heal wounds and support healthy growth into adulthood.
These three issues are among the most pervasive in the world’s developing countries, but also the most preventable through a coordinated intervention in childhood nutrition.
Since it’s creation, the Sprinkles treatment has suffered from a lack of support from the private sector. Global Pharma is addressing this through Project Doro by focusing action in the aid community and dedicating distribution and global logistics expertise towards getting Sprinkles into the hands of the world’s most needing families.
Project Doro aims to raise $1 Million in public and private funding in 2015; enough to treat 166,000 children with daily Sprinkles supplements for a full year. Over six years, the project looks to scale up to give one million children the chance at a healthy year’s diet.
These efforts are just the beginning. The compounding effects of malnutrition are too profound to be ignored. Addressing the invisible hunger of micronutrient deficiency is the first step we can make towards securing a healthy and resilient world population.
