For surviving children under age 5 who had diarrhea in the past 2 weeks, DIAGIVPILUNK (H15G) indicates, in response to an open-ended question, whether the child was given an unknown type of pill or syrup to treat this illness.
The content of DIAGIVPILUNK is similar to DIAGIVPILSYR (H15), which also reports that the child was given an unspecified (rather than unknown) pill or syrup to treat diarrhea. DIAGIVPILSYR is included in the standard DHS questionnaire starting in phase 1.
