This study is the result of a cross-sectional survey undertaken in five regions of the Republic of Congo.
A sample of 612 women having children under 3 years of age was interviewed to determine the socioeconomic, environmental, demographic and behavioral factors associated with the occurrence of diarrhea in young children.
Logistic regression analysis was used to determine which variables predict the occurrence of diarrhea in a multivariable context.
Most of the statistically significant variables were those suggesting behaviorally mediated modes of transmission.
