A community-based intervention was developed through direct participation of the target population in assessment and iterative trials to improve hygiene practices and to reduce childhood diarrhoea in lowland rural Bangladesh.
A total of 185 (98%) households with children ages 0-18 months in five contiguous villages were targeted for the interventions.
A comparison site was selected for a detailed observational study and for use as a control for the intervention.
About 97% of all households with children ages 0-18 months were enrolled for study at the control site.
Children in this age group were targeted because at this developmental stage they were most vulnerable to diarrhoeal morbidity and malnutrition.
(related to unhygienic practices).
