The results showed that the percentage of fathers who knew about the number of fluids given when their children had diarrhea in Indonesia in 2017 was 65.7%. Economic status and education level had a significant relationship with the father's knowledge (p-value < 0.05). Economic status is the most related factor to the father's knowledge (p-value < 0.001; OR 3.557 (2.371-5.337), after being controlled by other factors.
