As known, diarrheal diseases are both preventable and treatable, is the second leading cause of death among under-five children. Assessing the level of knowledge of mothers about the diarrhea and ORF and increasing the level of community knowledge about diarrhea and ORFs by training the parents in Bitlis city center is among Turkey's less developed eastern provinces. This cross-sectional, descriptive study contucted with a survey. Mothers brought her under-five child to ED with a complaint of diarrhea were included in April-June 2017. 150 mothers included. %89,3 of these are housewives; %22,7 were illiterate. %53,3 of mother have a low; %26,6 have a medium and %20 have a good knowledge about diarrhea.ORF usage rates is only %21,3. Survey scores of mothers who are working out of home, have high education level, are giving prepared or boiled water to her child and are aware from ORF were higher than others. At last, low marriage age of mothers affects level of knowledge about diarrhea. Periodic trainings for mothers have vital proof. Currently the health system-caregivers and the media must act together in an effective fight against diarrheal diseases which are the cause of significant mortality and morbidity. Diarrheal diseases, one of the indicators of development, perhaps the most important preventable causes of child mortality, can only be reduced in this way.
