The risk of children under five years experiencing wasting nutritional status increases with a history of diarrheal disease. The risk of children under five yearsexperiencing wasting nutritional status decreases with strong health workers-cadre-family partnerships and strong family support. The risk of a child under five yearsexperiencing a stunting nutritional status increases with a history of diarrheal disease. The risk of children under five years old experiencing stunting nutritional status decreases with strong health workers-cadre-family partnerships and strong family support.
