Motion text

That this House welcomes World Water Day 2014 on 24 March; notes that diarrhoeal diseases killed more than 1,600 children under five years of age every day in 2012, 600,000 per year, accounting for nine per cent of all under-five deaths; further notes that these deaths are largely preventable; further welcomes the World Health Organisation and the United Nations Children's Fund report Integrated Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Pneumonia and Diarrhoea (GAPPD) which aims to reduce deaths from diarrhoea to less than one in 1,000 by 2025; supports the conclusion of GAPPD that what is needed is 'an integrated national package of effective and affordable interventions that are tailored to local contexts and reach those children most at risk'; calls on national governments and the international community to support effective interventions, including continued breastfeeding, appropriate vaccinations, access to safe drinking water, sanitation and handwashing facilities, reduction in indoor air pollution and effective treatment, including oral rehydration solution and zinc; further welcomes the work of PATH, WaterAid and other international organisations in delivering healthcare solutions in the developing world; and further calls on the Government to continue to support integrated healthcare efforts.
