Mothers' fear of child death due to acute diarrhoea : a study in urban and rural communities in Northern Punjab, Pakistan.
The investigation of cultural models of diarrhoeal illness which are employed by mothers and their emotional responses to children's illnesses is presented in a study of 595 households in urban and rural communities in Punjab, Pakistan.
The household survey of mothers of children 0-36 months was complemented with in-depth interviews of a subsample of 70 mothers.
Findings indicate that diarrhoea must be regarded not only as a disease but as a symptom belonging to several popular illness categories.
