Amoxicillin Dispersible Tablets: Market and Supply Update – May 2018

UNICEF provides an update on amoxicillin dispersible tablets, highlighting supply and demand across low- and middle-income countries. Amoxicillin has demonstrated higher effectiveness as a first-line treatment for pneumonia, and supply is sufficient to meet current and anticipated demand. However, few governments to date have adopted WHO’s recommendations to incorporate amoxicillin DT into their country’s national treatment guidelines and List of Essential Medicines. UNICEF continues to encourage countries to scale-up use and access to amoxicillin dispersible tablets.
