Amoxicillin dispersible tablets

UNICEF provides a product profile and market update for amoxicillin dispersible tablets, including the current challenges  in scaling up access to communities.

New and improved WHO community level pneumonia treatment guidelines, combined with the increased availability of amoxicillin dispersible tablets, is an effective treatment for pneumonia and simplifies case management at community level.

Despite this, availability and use as first-line treatment for pneumonia in countries with a high burden caseload remains limited.

The Amoxicillin DT Market Note and content is currently under revision, and will be uploaded shortly after the conclusion of the 2017 tender.
