Community-based Intervention to Reduce Childhood Drowning in Bangladesh
This study will implement a strategy designed to prevent drowning deaths. The overall aim is to integrate a drowning-prevention component into community Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) interventions. The evaluation will assess the impact of a two-year intervention on cause-specific, under-5, child mortality and it will answer the following research question: Can provision of a community-based intervention by trained health workers in Bangladesh reduce drowning mortality rates by 50% compared to communities where such interventions are not provided?
