Public investment in sanitation and hygiene, water supply and quality and the provision of medical equipment that detect symptoms of childhood diseases, in combination of training and education for medical workers, are effective policy strategies to reduce diarrhoeal diseases and acute respiratory infections.

There is a need for disaggregation of analysis by age cohorts, as impact effectiveness of policies depends on children’s age.
