Explore local patterns of diarrhea burden across the world from 2000 to 2019 with this interactive visualization tool. Compare diarrheal prevalence, incidence, and mortality at multiple spatial scales – from values at the country level to estimates for individual districts and departments. Search for specific areas to view local trends, and share your findings with others. Observe temporal patterns of improvement, and examine the probability of achieving the WHO Global Action Plan for Pneumonia and Diarrhea (GAPPD) goals.
