Community Case Management Essentials Guide: Treating Common Childhood Illnesses in the Community: A Guide for Program Managers

Download this publicationWhile the leading causes of death among children under five are well understood - efforts to protect the children most at risk have not kept pace with global goals. But now a growing body of evidence supports a new approach that may make a dent in childhood deaths from the biggest killers: pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, newborn infection and malnutrition. This publication provides operational guidance to design, plan, implement, monitor, and/or advocate for community case management (CCM) of childhood illnesses that responds to local needs. It is a .how-to. guide for programs, rather than a source of clinical guidance. Designed primarily for program managers at the district level - from ministries of health and NGOs - central-level planners, advocates, academics, and other international health professionals will also find this guide useful. The guide was funded by USAID through the CORE Group, Save the Children, BASICS, and MCHIP. 2010.
