Background: Diarrhea is still a major public health issue in Ghana, and it costs the country's health-care system a lot of money. Understanding the probable determinants of spatiotemporal patterns of diarrhoea is critical for prioritising district-level hotspots of diarrhoea incidence for effective targeted interventions. The goal of this study was to determine the spatiotemporal variability of diarrhoea incidence in Ghana and to investigate how climatic and socioeconomic factors influence the patterns.

Methods - We used monthly district-level clinically diagnosed diarrhoea data from the Ghana Health Services' Center for Health Information and Management from 2012 to 2018. In Ghana, we used a hierarchical Bayesian spatiotemporal modelling framework to assess potential associations between monthly diarrhoea incidence at the district level and meteorological variables (mean temperature, diurnal temperature range, surface water presence) and socio-demographic factors (population density, Gini index, District League Table score). We also looked to see if these relationships were consistent throughout the four agro-ecological zones.

Results: There was significant spatial variation in diarrhoea patterns throughout the districts, with high diarrhoea risk areas clustered primarily in the transition and savannah zones. The average monthly temporal patterns of diarrhoea exhibited a weak biannual seasonality, with major and minor peaks coinciding with the major and minor wet seasons, respectively. Both climatic and socio-demographic characteristics were shown to be associated with diarrhoea risk, but the degree and direction of the correlations varied among the four agro-ecological zones. Overall and across the agro-ecological zones, surface water presence was consistently positive, while diurnal temperature range and population density were consistently negative.

Conclusions: While the overall incidence of diarrhoea in Ghana is decreasing, our findings identified high-risk districts that could benefit from district-specific customised intervention techniques to strengthen control efforts. These findings can be used by Ghanaian health policymakers to assess the efficacy of existing programmes at the district level and to prioritise resource allocation for diarrhoea reduction.
