Assessment of a household latrine revision intervention implemented in Kabul, Afghanistan for evidence of a reduction in diarrhoeal disease occurrence. The researchers conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis using direct and indirect costs for health care interventions. The study indicates that the interventions of the International Committee of the Red Cross reduced the risk of diarrhoeal disease morbidity in children and that its cost effectiveness was comparable to other health care interventions.
