Diarrhea is a disease that is a problem faced by everyone around the world. This disease is often
experienced by adults and children. Diarrhea is also one of the causes of child death, but currently child
deaths caused by diarrhea are decreasing but are still a health burden throughout the world. Risk factors
that can contribute to diarrheal disease are environmental factors, community behavior factors, low public
awareness about diarrhea and malnutrition. Examples of adverse environmental factors include inadequate
sanitation and inadequate access to clean water. Purpose: This community service activity aims to make the
community aware of diarrheal diseases, so that people can increase changes in their environment, especially
about living a healthy lifestyle, good sanitation and hygiene, and being able to carry out self-medication and
prescribe medicine wisely. Method: Community service/community counseling is carried out by direct lecture
method to the audience present at the Inotu Mewao village hall. Results: The successful achievement of this
community outreach/service activity was measured by distributing questionnaires to the audience which were
filled out at the beginning and end of the community service event. The achievement of this activity is
assessed from the level of knowledge and understanding of the community about diarrhea.
