GEMS study pinpoints main causes of childhood diarrheal diseases, suggests effective solutions The Global Enteric Multicenter Study GEMS is the largest, most comprehensive study of childhood diarrheal diseases ever conducted in developing country settings.
Globally, diarrheal diseases are the second leading cause of death among children under five, despite the existence of effective interventions, such as oral rehydration solutions ORS and zinc supplements as general treatments. Many different bacteria, viruses and other pathogens can cause diarrheal disease.
However, it has been difficult to prioritize and target interventions because previous studies cannot be easily compared or combined due to differences and limitations in the methods used.
By studying more than 22, children 9, cases and 13, controls across two continents with consistent methods, GEMS provides important, new data that will help researchers, policymakers, donors and advocates make evidence-based decisions to help to reduce the global burden of diarrheal diseases.
Treatment of diarrhea in young children: Although oral rehydration solution ORS has tremendous therapeutic benefits, coverage of and demand for this product have remained low in many developing countries.
This study surveyed caregivers and health care providers in India and Kenya to gather information about perceptions and use of various diarrhea treatments, assess reasons for low ORS use, and identify opportunities for expanding ORS use. Previous studies have shown that only 1 in 10 children with diarrhoea in India receive increased fluids to prevent death from dehydration, contributing to more than a million deaths every year.
By contrast, more than 1 in 3 are inappropriately given antibiotics, which are not generally recommended for childhood diarrhoea. A thousand children die needlessly from diarrhoea every day in India alone, due to basic errors in care from parents and health workers.
This new paper from India and Kenya provides further cause for concern How can we do better to improve the knowledge of citizens and health workers to manage child diarrhoea more effectively?

Largest ever diarrhea study highlights solutions Findings published in The Lancet can guide prevention, treatment and research on diarrheal diseases, which claim the lives ofchildren annually 15 MAY — WHO - A new study published in The Lancet has pinpointed the primary causes and impact of diarrheal diseases—a leading cause of deaths among children globally—and has revealed new opportunities for intervention.
The Global Enteric Multicenter Study GEMS is the largest study ever conducted on diarrheal diseases in developing countries, enrolling more than 20, children from seven sites across Asia and Africa.chapter 4 National medicine policy Summary Introduction What is a national medicine policy?
What should a medicine policy accomplish? This study examines drug use in Yemen and factors leading to inappropriate use of medicines particularly antibiotics and the prescribing pattern. It defines rational drug use and describes policy developments, which aim to encourage appropriate use.
With a substantial development of research and findings for breastfeeding over the past three decades, we are now able to expand on the health benefits for both women and children across the globe. The government of Democratic Yemen started an essential drugs programme in Every month quantities of 30 drugs are delivered in prepacked kits to health units and standard treatment schedules.
This systematic analysis evaluates the cancer burden over time at the global and national levels measured in incidence, mortality, years lived with disability.
