'O WAR!...
THE CHILD OF MALICE AND REVENGEFUL HATE..'

ONE OF HORRORS OF WAR IS THAT SANITATION INFRASTRUCTURES ARE BEING DESTROYED AND AT WAR TIME, PEOPLE ARE DYING FROM DIARRHEA AND DYSENTERY. DUE TO THE PROBLEMS WITH OBTAINING CLEAN WATER AND POOR HYGIENE.

CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS THE MOST SUSCEPTIBLE TO INFECTIONS SUCH AS DIARRHEA.

DYSENTERY
NAME GIVEN TO A GROUP OF DISORDERS IN WHICH THERE IS DIARRHEA, PRODUCED BY IRRITATION OF THE BOWELS.

DIARRHEA
WATERY, LOOSE BOWEL MOVEMENTS 
( MEDICAL DICTIONARY by Ottenheimer Publishers, Inc ) 

MOST OF THE TIME DIARRHEA IS THE SYMPTOM OF AN INFECTION IN THE INTESTINAL TRACT. THREE WATERY BOWELS MOVEMENT PER DAY WOULD BE CONSIDERED A DIARRHEA. 
RESULT OF DIARRHEA IS LOSS OF FLUIDS, 
ELECTROLYTES (CHLORIDE, SODIUM, POTASSIUM, BICARBONATE)  -WATER AND SALT.  THAT LEADS TO DEHYDRATION AND MALNUTRITION (in children).
THE LOSS OF FLUIDS OCCURS THROUGH:
LIQUID STOOL, 
VOMIT, 
SWEAT,
BREATHING,
URINE.

IF BODY FLUIDS AND ELECTROLYTES ARE NOT REPLENISHED THE DEATH WILL
FOLLOW. 
THE TREATMENT IS 
1. INTRAVENOUS  DRIP 
2. ORAL REHYDRATION (ORS), THAT IS  SALT SOLUTION (CLEAN WATER WITH SALT     AND SUGAR) TREATMENT
3. ZINC SUPPLEMENT (can reduce  duration of diarrhea up to  25%)
4. ROTOVIRUS VACCINATIA
5. GOOD NUTRITION.  ESPECIALLY IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES,  UNDERLAYING 
    PROBLEM OF DIARRHEA IS MALNUTRITION.  
     TO MINIMIZE CHILD CONTACT WITH CONTAMINANTS  IT IS HIGHLY                             RECOMMENDED TO BREASTFEED  THE CHILD FOR THE FIRST 6 MONTH. 


WORLDWIDE, DIARRHEA IS THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN
CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS OLD  THAT IS ONE IN NINE, WORLDWIDE.
THAT IS AROUND 760,000 EVERY YEAR. ACCORDING TO CDC (CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL PREVENTION) 2,195  CHILDREN ARE KILLED DAILY BY DIARRHEA THAT
MORE THEN BY AIDS, MALARIA AND MEASLES  COMBINE.
IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.

IT IS CAUSED BY PARASITES, BACTERIA OR VIRAL FROM CONTAMINATED FOOD OR WATER, POOR HYGIENE, SANITATION, PERSON TO PERSON- DIRECT CONTACT.
IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES OFTEN CAUSED BY ETIOLOGICAL AGENTS SUCH AS
ROTAVIRUS OR ESCHERICHIA COLI.

IT IS PREVENTABLE AND TREATABLE.
ESSENTIAL FACTOR IS CLEAN, SAFE DRINKING WATER, PROPER HYGIENE SUCH AS
WASHING HANDS AND FOOD (fish that came from contaminated water can cause diarrhea).
