Mutinta’s five-month-old daughter has diarrhea. In developed nations, a stomach complaint like that might be a mere nuisance. However, in Zambia’s vast countryside—without electricity, water, soap, and medicine—diarrhea is a matter of life and death. Here, over 11,000 children die of diarrhea each year, while across the world there are 700,000 diarrhea-related deaths annually. Malnutrition, made worse by diarrhea, contributes to 45 percent of all child deaths and causes many more children to fail to reach their full mental and physical potential.

Working for more than a decade in international development in several countries across Africa, South America, and the Caribbean, Ashoka Fellow Simon Berry found himself asking one question: “Coca-Cola gets everywhere, to even the most remote places in developing countries, yet essential medicines don’t. Why?”

ColaLife has an immense amount of data, which is all open-source. It’s wonderful reading at their website, which is colalife.org. They don’t have anything officially to do with Coca-Cola, they just use Coca-Cola’s supply chain. It turned out that nobody cared about Coca-Cola. Once they got into the same place where Coca-Cola was sold, the vendors were happy to come and pick up their product, too.
