Toddlers Diarrheal Cases in the UPTD Coastal Areas of the Wadiabero Public Health Center in the Years 2018-2020


The toddler phase is a transition sequence from a baby to an infant. In this phase the toddler needs full support from parents regarding growth and development to prevent them from contracting a deadly disease like diarrhea. Diarrhea is an endemic disease in Indonesia and is referred to as an extraordinary disease which often causes death. One of the regency in Indonesia affected by diarrhea is the Central Buton Regency, especially at the Wadiabero Public Health Center. Diarrhea at the Wadiabero Public Health Center has increased year by year. The diarrhea cases mostly appear at the age of 0-1 years old. The annual survey of nutrition data showed that patients with diarrhea are predicted to not get enough of exclusive breastfeeding during the infant phase.
