Use of ORT is saving 1 million diarrhoeal deaths each year among children. C.S.S.M. programme aims at preventing 70% diarrhoeal deaths, through widespread use of ORT. The present study was carried out to find out the extent of the problem of diarrhoea and utilisation of ORT in three districts of West Bengal. The results showed that the utilisation of ORT was 80.8%, 70.7% and 65% in Howrah, Hooghly and 24-Parganas (South) respectively, during attacks of diarrhoea. The continuing feeding rates were 60.1%, 62.7% and 55.5% in Howrah, Hooghly and 24-Parganas (South) respectively.
