United Nations Radio, October 2009
"It's a tragedy that diarrhoea, which is little more than an inconvenience in the developed world, kills an estimated 1.5 million children each year says UNICEF Executive Director, Ann Veneman. She says inexpensive and effective treatments for diarrhoea exist, but in developing countries only 39 per cent of children with the disease receive the recommended treatment."
