Key Messages
  • Diarrhoea is caused by germs found in human faeces - if the germs get into your water or food, hands, utensils or surfaces used for preparing and serving food, they can be swallowed and cause diarrhoea.

  • Personal and family hygiene can prevent diarrhoea. To protect yourself and your family, here's what you need to do:

    • Use clean water for drinking.

    • Exclusively breastfeed your babies who are less than 6 months.

    • Keep hands clean by washing them regularly with soap – after using the toilet, disposing a child's excreta and before handling food.

    • Eating safe and clean food which is not spoilt.

    • Having and using a toilet at home.

    • Proper disposal of faeces- including children's feces.

  • You can also protect your child from diarrhoea by washing and cooking raw food properly - avoiding exposure of food to dust, flies or cockroaches, serving and eating cooked food immediately, avoiding contact between raw and cooked food, and use clean containers for serving and storing food and water.
Discussions and Frequently Asked Questions

 How do diarrhoea germs spread from bad hygiene practices?

Key Response: Diarrhoea is caused by germs found in human faeces. If you do not practice good hygiene- the germs can end up on your hands, utensils and places for food preparation, in your water and food and then in your mouth. Your children put their hands in their mouths frequently. So it is important to keep the household area clean. Teach your children how to properly wash their hands, especially after defecating and before eating.

Note: Review the F diagram in the Hygiene Sanitation Chapter, under Video 1, and explain to the group how germs are spread by poor hygiene practices.


 Discuss the common practices in which caregivers don't wash their hands. For example, limited supply of water for household chores leads to conserving water by not washing hands.


 Why is measles immunization important for children?

Key Response: Having measles can also cause diarrhoea which in turn causes loss of micronutrients such as vitamin A and zinc. Measles immunization can substantially reduce the incidence and severity of diarrhoeal diseases. Every infant should be immunized against measles at 9 months of age. Proper weaning and feeding practices are important in maintaining a child's health. If children are well nourished – the severity and impact of diarrhoea is lessened
