GILL, S.; HAYES, J.; COATES, S. (2012): DIARRHOEA DIALOGUES From Policies to Progress. A call for urgent action to prevent the biggest killer of children in sub-Saharan Africa. Teddington and Washington, D.C.: Tearfund and Path. URL [Accessed: 30.05.2012]. PDF

This review looks at the policy environment for diarrhoea control in three African countries, in order to glean lessons learnt about what more we can do to address this problem. While solutions are available to prevent and treat diarrhoea, the political will and health prioritisation are still lacking to make these solutions widely available to those who need them most. To accelerate progress in cutting mortality from diarrhoea, global and national decision-makers need to take urgent action.
