Abstract

Diarrhoea is defined as the passage of loose, liquid or watery stools, more than three times a day. It is a major public health problem and is one of the leading causes of illness and death, in children, living in insanitary conditions. World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that about 3.5 million deaths occur each year because of diarrhoea and its related complications of dehydration and malnutrition.
