Using surveys in Mozambique for evaluation of diarrhoeal disease control



Using surveys in Mozambique for evaluation of diarrhoeal disease control



Health Policy and Planning 5(3): 219-225



The Diarrhoeal Diseases Control Programme in Mozambique has been evaluated extensively using surveys. These have examined a range of topics including mortality and morbidity, health centre management and follow-up, diarrhoea prevalence and dehydration, and household knowledge. The surveys identified high diarrhoea-associated morbidity and mortality rates, and knowledge of oral rehydration salts (ORS) by between 88% and 93% of respondents.
