This fact sheet highlights PATH's efforts to reduce deaths caused by diarrheal disease by improving the current formulation of oral rehydration solution (ORS) so that it not only reverses dehydration, but also treats diarrheal symptoms. By adding a treatment agent to ORS, PATH and our partners hope to increase ORS utilization in low-resource countries where deaths due to diarrheal disease are the highest.
