Acute infectious gastroenteritis is a major cause of largely preventable child morbidity and mortality worldwide. It is the second leading cause of death in preschool children, causing more than 1.200.000 deaths every year. Early management of symptoms and incorporating preventative measures (e.g. hand washing) can lower the spread of the disease, the risk of hospitalization, and death. Implementing these measures early on in the course of the disease is essential. Therefore, the Federation of International Societies for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (FISGHAN) has created this video to share information on current standards of treating acute gastroenteritis.
