This blog is authored by Annie Heathorn, Holly Koch, and Rachel Mahoney. We are undergraduates at UCLA and we are passionate about global health and human rights issues. Our blog focuses on the causes and consequences of diarrhoeal disease, which is the leading cause of malnutrition worldwide and has claims the lives of 1.5 million children per year — although the disease is both treatable and preventable. We hope to explore and illuminate the global health and human rights disparities that proliferate the suffering caused by diarrhoeal disease.
