dc.description.abstract Background: Acute diarrhea is a major common cause of morbidity and second leading cause of child death in the world. The disease accounts for 1.3 million deaths in resource-limited countries including Ethiopia. Even though there were studies that were done on childhood diarrhea in our country, they were limited analytical studies design to determine associated factors of acute diarrhea. Objectives: This study was intended to asses potential factors associated with acute diarrhea in younger children aged 6-59 months in public health facility in Seyadebrina Wayu District, North Shoa, Amhara Regional State, Ethiopia, 2019. Methods: Facility based unmatched case control study design on sample population of 105 cases and 210 controls were conducted from March 12th 2019 to May 12th 2019. Systematic random sampling technique was used to select study subjects. Standardized structured questionnaire for data collection, Epi-data V 3.1 for data entry and SPSS version 20.0 for data analysis were used. Odd ratio with 95% CI was employed to test the significant association. Multiple logistic regression analysis was employed to evaluate independent effect of covariates on the acute diarrhea. Results: The odds of experiencing acute diarrhea was significantly higher among children: mothers/caregivers hand washing practices with water only [AOR: 3.75, 95% CI: (1.16- 12.13)], inappropriate disposal of infant feces [AOR: 11.01, 95% CI: (3.37-35.96)], drinking water not treatment at home [AOR: 9.36, 95% CI: (2.73-32.08)], consume leftover food [AOR: 5.52, 95% CI: (1.60-19.03)], average monthly family income 501-1000 ETB [AOR: 6, 22, 95% CI:(1.3029.64)], and having mothers’/caregivers poor knowledge of major risk factors were the independent predictors of acute diarrhea. Conclusion: Majority of identified finding have strong associations with maternal or caretaker’s behavior. Letting the community giving multi level interventions are recommended to alleviate the problem of children aged 6-59 months acute diarrhea. en_US
