UNDER FIVE DEATHS BY CAUSE, 2000-2003 Childrens Questionnaire CARE OF ILLNESS MODULE Acute respiratory infections 19% Neonatal causes 36% HIV/AIDS 3% Measles 4% Malaria 8% Other diseases and injuries 13% Diarrhoeal diseases (post-neonatal) 17% More than half of under five deaths associated with malnutrition
Purpose To provide basic data to calculate indicators on – Treatment for diarrhoeal disease – Treatment and care seeking for pneumonia – Sanitary means of excreta disposal for young children Childrens Questionnaire CARE OF ILLNESS MODULE
WHO defines cases of suspected pneumonia as children reported to have an illness with a cough accompanied by fast and/or difficult breathing. Simple cases of cold with a blocked nose are filtered out with a second question: Were these symptoms due to a problem in the chest or a blocked nose? If a local term for rapid breathing exists, using that term may be the simplest way to obtain cases of ARI that need to be seen by a health care provider. Background Acute Respiratory Infection Childrens Questionnaire CARE OF ILLNESS MODULE
WHO and UNICEF recommend that children with diarrhoeal disease be treated with either Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) or increased fluids AND continued feeding. Treatment recommendations and indicators have changed over the last ten years. New indicator has been added. Childrens Questionnaire CARE OF ILLNESS MODULE Background Diarrhoeal Disease
Indicators Treatment for dehydrating diarrhea: ORT use Home management of diarrhoea Received ORT or increased fluids, and continued feeding Treatment for suspected pneumonia: Antibiotic treatment of pneumonia Care seeking for pneumonia Hygiene: Sanitary disposal of childs feces Childrens Questionnaire CARE OF ILLNESS MODULE
Preparation Definition of appropriate health provider should be defined at country level. Adapt for country-specific term used for the ORS packet and for the pre-packaged ORS fluid. If no pre-packaged ORS is available in the country, delete this category. Include country-specific recommended home fluid. Ingredients promoted by the government for making the recommended home fluid should be reflected in this category. Childrens Questionnaire CARE OF ILLNESS MODULE
