National Workshop on Prevention and Control of Diarrheal Disease

  • Diarrheal diseases, despite being, to a large extent, manageable in terms of prevention and treatment, Nepal still faces endemics and outbreaks time and again in several districts. The problems of diarrheal diseases are largely attributable to inadequate safe drinking water supply, poor sanitation and sub-optimal living conditions. Nepal Public Health Foundation with support of WHO Country Office organized a two-day workshop on 11-12th August 2011 with a support of WHO Country office, Nepal regarding the prevention and control of Diarrhoeal diseases. The main objective of the workshop was to bring together various civil societies and academies from the health sector and the government in order to come up with a substantial solution to deal with Diarrhoeal diseases in Nepal and concentrate efforts on preventing it.
