Dr. Rohit Ramchandani is a public health adviser & principal investigator at ColaLife. This innovative charity asked the question: “Coca-Cola seems to get everywhere in developing countries, yet essential medicines don’t. Why?” Using the same principles and networks that Coca-Cola and other commodity producers use, ColaLife seeks to open up private sector supply chains for ‘social products’. These include oral rehydration salts and zinc supplements to treat diarrhea.
Dr. Ramchandani is also Founder & Executive Director, Antara Global Health Advisors; Doctor of Public Health Candidate, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health; and Adjunct Lecturer, University of Waterloo School of Public Health & Health Systems. He is recognized as a “Rising Star in Global Health”, and his work focuses on improving lives, increasing equity, and preventing needless loss of life by providing global health expertise, experience, partnerships, and evidence-based public health and management advice.
