Abstract

Background of Study : “Diarrheal disease ranks as the second leading cause of child mortality and morbidity globally, primarily stemming from contaminated food and water sources. The World Health Organization has designated childhood diarrhea research as a top priority in achieving the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goal. Addressing this condition involves implementing preventive and management measures at home. Therefore, the core aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a structured educational program in enhancing mothers’ knowledge and practices concerning the prevention and management of diarrhea in young children at selected Anganwadi centers in District Karnal.” Methodology:A quasi-experimental research design was used and study was conducted on 100 mothers of toddler at selected Anganwadi of Karnal with the help of Convenience sampling technique. The survey utilized a self-designed interview questionnaire to evaluate the mothers’ knowledge, while a checklist was employed to assess their practices. Results: The study’s findings demonstrated statistically notable enhancements in both the knowledge and practical application of mothers concerning the prevention and management of toddler diarrhea following the structured teaching program. Conclusion: The study concluded that the structured teaching program proved to be more effective in enhancing both the knowledge and practices of mothers regarding the prevention and management of diarrhea.
