Sources for Sick Child Care in Liberia
Both the public and private sectors are important sources of sick child care in Liberia. Understanding if and where sick children are taken for care is critical to improve case management interventions. This slide deck presents a secondary analysis of the 2013 Liberia Demographic and Health Survey to examine where treatment or advice is sought for sick children who experience at least one of three treatable illnesses: fever, acute respiratory infection, or diarrhea. These illnesses represent some of the leading causes of death in children under five years old.
