Abstract

Determinants of Diarrheal Diseases among under Five Years of Age at a Pediatric Hospital

Author(s):Mohamed Osman Elamin Bushara*

The study was designed as a descriptive cross-sectional study aimed at identifying the determinants and risks of diarrheal diseases among under five years of age at a Pediatric Hospital in Khartoum state, Sudan. The study sample was 184 at the required age. The results clarified that diarrheal diseases were more prevalent among the age group one month to one year (72%), 78.3% of mothers were not using disinfected water at home, 34.8% of mothers weren’t cleaning breasts before breastfeeding their children. The study recommended educating and training mothers on how to prepare Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) at home, cleaning the breast before breastfeeding, washing hands techniques, and raising their health awareness to reduce risk factors of diarrheal diseases among that age group.
