Abstract :

The study attempts to evaluate the prevalence and incidence of childhood diarrheal morbidity and mortality in Africa during the period of 2000 to 2015. The results indicate concentrated areas of diarrheal disease and diarrhea-related death in countries that had a consistently higher burden as well as in countries that had considerable national-level reductions in diarrhea.
