Drive to create awareness of oral rehydration solution therapy

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: Rotary International has joined the State government in creating awareness of the need to administer oral rehydration solution therapy and zinc tablets to children to reduce episodes of diarrhoea. They will distribute packets and tablets during a special round of pulse polio immunisation programme to be held in the State on Sunday and December 13 for children of migrant labourers.

The State government has been providing zinc tablet strips along with ORS through its health centres since August.
