Overview

These guidelines are designed to prepare clinic based health workers to implement the new WHO/UNICEF recommendations for the use of ORS and zinc supplementation in the clinical management of diarrhoea. The information is meant to complement, not replace, more comprehensive policy guidance available from WHO on the management of diarrhoea. The guidelines presented here are generic, that is, they will be most effective when modified to support the particular strategy being used to introduce the new recommendations in each country.
