ColaLife worked with mothers to design the specially tailored, low-cost treatment kit. Each kit contains 200ml sachets of ORS, 10 zinc tablets and soap, all packaged in a container that serves as a measure for the correct amount of water, a mixing and storage device, and cup for administering the ORS.

Suddenly, your world just explodes! Is there someone out there with distribution, audience, or resources you could utilize? In 2008, for example, ColaLife had the idea to bring life-saving medicines to parts of Africa. It just lacked the distribution. So, the company identified Coca-Cola as a partner with all the distribution it could ever hope for; and went after them.

So how about a cure for diarrhea – the leading killer of children in Africa under the age of five? Although the cure already exists, there are significant obstacles in getting that medicine to hundreds of rural African villages. And yet what is delivered to these villages almost without fail? Coca Cola! So if you could simply place the small medicine packs in cases of Coke, it would get there, right? And it did. This remarkable video captures that journey.

Bringing grassroots entrepreneurialism to healthcare is a feature of ColaLife Zambia, which won $370,000. Using the same distribution networks as fast moving consumer goods, such as soft drinks, retailers are able to buy kits containing treatments for diarrhoea – among the biggest childhood killers in Zambia – and roll them out in remote communities. ColaLife now plans to expand the programme into other countries which have expressed an interest in its approach.
