Epidemic in Nepal

Beginning May 2009, cases of Acute Watery Diarrhoea were firstly observed in three Village Development Committees (VDCs) of Jajarkot district in Nepal?s Mid Western region. The diarrhoea spread rapidly to cover all of the 30 VDCs. Since then, the infection has spread to adjoining districts (Rukum, Salyan, Surkhet, Rolpa, Dailekh and Dang) in the Mid-western region and in Bajura and Dadeldhura of the far-west region. Government Health Department predicts that the cases of diarrhoea could be of similar nature and aetiology.
