Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) is an effective strategy to address the three leading causes of child mortality—pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria. It brings services closer to the community and, given health system constraints in expanding existing or new health facilities, iCCM is effective for reaching underserved and hard to reach communities.
Key areas of focus under iCCM include:
MCHIP has assumed a secretariat role for the CCM Task Force and helped to improve coordination and information and tools sharing among key CCM partners globally and field programs. Through the CCM task Force, MCHIP is contributing to strengthening a partnership involving USAID, WHO and UNICEF. The Program is also collaborating with the Supply Chain for CCM (SC4CCM) project to strengthen supply chain management including forecasting and linking CCM needs to national supply chain systems.
