GSK and Save the Children form alliance

GSK Media Centre has reported that GSK and Save the Children have formed a unique partnership with the aim to save the lives of a million of the poorest children in the world.

The intention is together they will be able to accelerate the availability of two children’s medicines and establish a joint R&D board to tackle causes of newborn and infant death.

Among the key initiatives are the transformation of an antiseptic used in mouthwash into a life-saving product for new borns and the release of a powder form of an antibiotic in child friendly doses to help fight pneumonia which is one of the main killers of children under five.

The partnership will initially run two flagship programs in Sub Saharan Africa and Democratic Republic of Congo and Kenya.
