SALUS

Salus is a total redesign of the current packaging, distribution, and treatment system for antimalarial artemisinin-based combination treatment (ACT) drugs in Ethiopia. It empowers rural communities to detect and treat Malaria themselves, locally, whilst simultaneously giving early warning of drug shortages to the regional health bureau. 

Salus incorporates preexisting cultural and visual language, which allows it to be used easily by any member of the community. One kit holds medicine for 160 people and requires no literacy or prior medical training. All components of Salus are explained visually instead of through written instructions. Each step is numbered and has a corresponding infographic and color. The kit lives within the rural community in what is called a “Community House”. These houses, which functioned as the original health clinics, have existed for decades in rural communities and are still the first stop when a member of the community falls sick.
