Abstract

Diarrhoeal disease represents a continuing public health challenge. This is based on two combined issues: in terms of mortality it ranks as the second most common cause of death in children under 5 years old (Liu et al., 2012) and in terms of morbidity it has been associated with long-term deficits in physical (Checkley et al.2008) and cognitive development (Fischer Walkeret al., 2012).
