“…A similar study conducted in Kenya and found that care seeking is common for sick children in the youngest age group (0-11 months) and is slightly higher for boys than girls. 49 Our study results are consistent with those of a similar study of Brazil, where it was found that male children were more likely to be hospitalized for diarrheal disease than female children, 9 which also reflects the average cost of treatment in Bangladesh. 50 Age and education of mothers are significantly associated with treatment seeking patterns.…”

“…This might be because those infants are more dependent on the mother and require feeding appropriate for their age, which may lower the risk of diarrheal infections. 9 The study indicated that older mothers could be a protective factor against diarrheal diseases, in keeping with the results of other studies in other low-and middle-income countries. [43][44][45] However, the education and occupation of the mother are determining factors of the prevalence of childhood diarrhea.…”

“…There are several studies about the economic burden of diarrheal disease in many countries [ 19 – 25 ] but knowledge about the treatment cost of a full diarrheal episode is still limited in Bangladesh although such studies are vital for informing policies and allowing international comparisons [ 26 , 27 ]. There are several economic studies are available focusing diarrheal diseases in Bangladesh [ 28 – 31 ].…”
