Introducing Chlorhexidine in Nepal
The first community-based randomized controlled trial (RCT) assessing mortality reduction efficacy of chlorhexidine (CHX) applied to the umbilical cord was done in Nepal. When the results were available (~2005), they were immediately shared with the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) and other key partners in Nepal. These partners included, among others, USAID and two of its implementing projects, and key leaders in the medical community. JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., 2013.
