CIMSA – ISMKI Indonesia
We plan to ask PRO to give lecture for primary health doctors in targeted primary health care level about Rotavirus and the proper diarrhea management so it can suppress the number of irrational use of antibiotics for diarrhea in primary health care level. Then, we plan to ask the doctors to teach the cadres in targeted area about diarrhea and the proper way to manage it. Cadres then pass on their knowledge to the mothers with babies under 1,5 years old who routinely visit.
