Department of Paediatrics, Medical School, Calabar.
Questionnaires were given out randomly to 561 people to find out their knowledge, attitude and practices regarding diarrhoeal disease and its management. Most people know what diarrhoea is. Not many people can prepare the home-made salt-sugar solution. A variety of traditional remedies are used for treating diarrhoea and dehydration.
