Significant reductions were made in diarrheal
disease fatality rates in the 1970s and 1980s.
Because there are many causes of diarrheal
disease, SAGE emphasized the importance of providing rotavirus vaccination in the context of a comprehensive diarrheal
disease control strategy, including improvement of water quality, hygiene, and sanitation; provision of oral rehydration solution and zinc supplements; and overall improved case management.
Napo is organizing a program to accelerate the development and approval of a pediatric formulation of crofelemer targeting approval in 2011-2012 (pending additional funding), including the establishment of a global advisory board to ensure that the development program for an FDA approved pediatric product incorporates the current WHO guidelines for oral rehydration solution ("ORS"), zinc, and other guidelines for Essential Medicine treatment of diarrheal
disease and to generate a formulation that is practical and safe for resource-constrained regions with limited healthcare-trained personnel.
During the wet season, the only age distinction was that children older than 2 were less likely to suffer from diarrheal

Because many Pacific Islands depend on stored rainwater for drinking and hygiene, variations in rainfall and temperature affect their supplies in ways that increase the likelihood of contamination with fecal matter or bacteria or the need to resort to contaminated supplies--and contaminated water is a frequent cause of diarrheal
With the pediatric death toll due to diarrheal
illnesses exceeding that of AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined, OneWorld Health is working to discover and develop a novel anti-secretory diarrheal
drug to reduce fluid loss and help prevent death from dehydration caused by acute watery diarrheal
