Quantifying Adherence to ORS and Zinc Supplementation for the Treatment of Diarrhea in India

Diarrhea is the second leading cause of under five mortality globally. Despite recommendations for the use of ORS and zinc supplementation, coverage levels and caregiver adherence to both treatments remain low. Knowledge gaps surrounding the promotion of ORS and zinc at the provider level pose a challenge to increasing adherence among caregivers. To address this paucity of evidence, I propose the addition of a sub-study to a planned evaluation of an ORS and zinc scale-up project in two states of India, which will determine the extent to which caregivers are adherent to the recommended treatment regimen. In this study I will also assess the relationship between caregiver actions, provider messages, and mass media message delivery channels, all of which potentially impact adherence or failure to adhere to treatment.
