As one of the world’s largest producers of zinc, Teck is a Canadian company committed to helping solve the global health challenge of zinc deficiency. Zinc deficiency affects two billion people worldwide and contributes to the death of 450,000 children annually.
Teck’s Zinc & Health program partners with organizations such as UNICEF, the Government of Canada and Nutrition International to scale up both short- and long-term solutions to zinc deficiency. These solutions include therapeutic zinc for the treatment of childhood diarrhea, zinc supplementation, food fortification and crop nutrition. Since our Zinc & Health program launched in 2011, we have provided zinc and oral rehydration salts to more than 44 million children with life-threatening diarrhea in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Senegal, Kenya and India.
