Assessment of the impact of health education program about diarrheal care in children on mothers in Ismailia, Egypt
Mortality from diarrhea has declined over the past two decades from an estimated
5 million deaths
among children under five to
1.5 million deaths
in 2004.

Despite these declines, diarrhea remains

the second most common cause of death among children under five globally
following closely behind pneumonia, the leading killer of young children.

One of the major reasons for the poor outcomes of diarrhea episodes is the
mother’s treatment at home
and the kind of professional treatment she seeks.
In a survey done in ten countries of the Third World, it was confirmed that
parental education
has a major importance in reducing child mortality.
