  • Product Description

This study aimed to quantify the burden of childhood diarrhoea morbidity and mortality associated with Water, sanitation and hygiene using household data and hospital records. The study used a cross- sectional non interventional scenario specific approach. The parameters considered included access to improved water and sanitation, household hygiene knowledge and practice and diarrhoea mortality and morbidity. Water samples were collected for bacteriological quality assessment. The results indicate that poor areas received significantly low and unreliable amounts of water and inadequate sanitary facilities. Also bacteriological quality of water for poor residential environs was generally poor. The results show that children loose approximately 10% of their quality life to diarrhoea in the study area. The diarrhoea patterns observed emphasized the role of socio-economic, educational, water supply and sanitation factors on diarrhoea morbidity and mortality. it is recommended that multi-stakeholder involvement and strengthening of the institutional mechanisms responsible for providing water and sanitation will be key in improving children''s health.
