The Influence of Episode Severity on Caregiver Recall, Care-seeking, and Treatment of Diarrhea Among Children 2-59 Months of Age in Bihar, Gujarat, and Uttar Pradesh, India.

Lamberti LM, Fischer Walker CL, Taneja S, Mazumder S, Black RE - Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg. (2015)

Bottom Line: Increased diarrheal episode severity has been linked to better 2-week recall and improved care-seeking and treatment among caregivers of children under five.Recall error was higher for episodes with onset 8-14 days (31.2%) versus 1-7 days (4.8%) before the survey, and logistic regression analysis showed a trend toward increased severity of less recent compared with more recent episodes.Our findings are of importance to researchers and diarrhea management program evaluators aiming to produce accurate estimates of diarrheal outcomes and program impact in low- and middle-income countries.

Distribution of recalled diarrheal episodes (N = 2,132 episodes) by reported date of onset (episodes with reported onset on the day of the survey were combined with those starting 1 day before the survey, since the survey date was not a full day of observation).

Figure 2: Distribution of recalled diarrheal episodes (N = 2,132 episodes) by reported date of onset (episodes with reported onset on the day of the survey were combined with those starting 1 day before the survey, since the survey date was not a full day of observation).

Mentions: The recall errors for the periods of 1–7 and 8–14 days before the survey were 4.8% and 31.2%, respectively. Figure 2Figure 2.
