Abstract

Preventable under 5 mortality is a global burden. Early detection of danger signs among under 5 sick children will prompt the caregivers to seek urgent health assistance, thus reduces the risk for morbidity and mortality. We aim to measure the proportion of correctly identify danger and non-danger signs among caregivers in Kuantan, Pahang. A cross-sectional study was conducted among 393 purposely selected caregivers of under 5 children who attended eight well-child clinics between January and August 2020.
