Diarrhoea: Why Children Are Still Dying and What Can Be Done

This joint report from the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) focuses attention on the prevention and management of diarrheal diseases. It examines the latest available information on the burden of childhood diarrhea and analyzes how well countries are doing in providing proven interventions to reduce its toll. The report also lays out a new strategy for diarrhea control, setting out a seven-point plan that draws from different sectors to include both prevention and treatment interventions.
