The Management of Diarrhoea and Use of Oral Rehydration Therapy

The Management of Diarrhoea and Use of Oral Rehydration Therapy - Second Edition - A Joint WHO/UNICEF Statement

An estimated 60-70% of diarrhoeal deaths are caused by dehydration. Oral rehydration therapy (ORT) can prevent and correct this dehydration and thus prevent many of these diarrhoea-associated deaths. This technological breakthrough offers important new possibilities for reducing the number of deaths in children because it can be used throughout the health care system and can even be administered in the home by family members.
