What is it about?
Childhood diarrhea and Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) are two diseases with similar risk factors in tropical developing regions. The objective of this study was to employ a joint binary response model and identify risk factors for childhood diarrhea and ARI in children under the age of five. A joint binary response model that takes into account the interdependence of the two diseases was used.

Why is it important?
In tropical developing nations, acute respiratory infection (ARI) and childhood diarrhea both have similar risk factors. This study's objective was to employ a joint binary response model to pinpoint the causes of ARI and childhood diarrhea in children under the age of five. The interconnectedness of the two diseases was taken into account using a joint binary response model.
