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.
