Sample situations for APAC role-play

Mother 1:

Your little girl is nine months old and has had diarrhoea for two days. You have tried to feed her some rice but she doesn’t want anything but breastmilk. Your mother-in-law says your breastmilk must be spoiled, and she thinks you should stop breastfeeding for a few days. You have not used ORS or any recommended home fluid.

   

Health worker 1:

This girl is nine months old. She has had simple diarrhoea for two days and shows no signs of dehydration.

 

Mother 2:

Your boy is seven months old. He has had diarrhoea for three days. You went to the drug seller and bought some pills that she told you would stop the diarrhoea, but even though you have given him two of them the diarrhoea has not stopped. The child drinks well (he likes rice water) but he is eating very little, although you have been trying. You live a long way from the health centre.

   

Health worker 2:

This boy is seven months old. He has had diarrhoea for three days but he is not dehydrated. The mother lives a long way from the health centre.

 

Mother 3:

Your child is one year old. Because you are pregnant, you have stopped breastfeeding, and because the girl has had diarrhoea for three days you decided yesterday to stop giving her food, to let her stomach rest. But the diarrhoea has not stopped. You have heard of ORS, but you are not sure how to use it or what it is for.

   

Health worker 3:

This child is one year old and has had diarrhoea for three days. She shows no signs of dehydration. The mother is pregnant.
