Zambia's Western Province has some of the country's highest poverty rates, at 80%, and is vulnerable to disasters, having periods of both drought and flooding. The Limulunga district has diarrhoea as one of the leading causes of under-five child mortality.
This project reduces child mortality due to diarrhoea through building community resilience for diarrhoea by reducing risk for children under five years-old.
The target group is children under five, as well as those over five. Other beneficiaries include women who have newborn babies, malnourished children, and patients and staff at health facilities. The project will reach just under 100,000 individuals.
