The tool was adapted from similar studies conducted elsewhere and WHO standard guidelines. The tool included: socio-demographic characteristics of study participants and index child; health Care Service and utilization characteristics; knowledge of mothers on ORT and ORT use during the diarrheal episode. It was pre-tested on 5% of the study population before actual data collection and necessary adjustments were made. Five diploma nurses for data collection and two BSc nurses for supervision were recruited. The training was given to the data collectors and supervisors on the study’s objective and data collection methods. Data were collected by face-to-face interviews. During data collection, the completeness and consistency of the responses in the study questionnaire were checked daily by the principal investigator before submission.
