Two New Reports Highlight Stalled Progress Against Diarrheal Disease: Nearly 1.6 Million Children Die Each Year From These Preventable and Treatable Diseases

Call to Action demonstrates commitment to combating a leading killer of children worldwide

Diarrheal Disease: Solutions to Defeat a Global Killer from PATH and Fatal Neglect: How Health Systems are Failing to Comprehensively Address Child Mortality from WaterAid America highlight the urgent need to refocus attention on diarrheal disease, a prolific global killer.
