Publish Date: November 2013

Language: English

This report reviews integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) training materials and guidelines from 10 African countries for the management of the sick child by Community Health Workers at the community level, and compares them to the guidelines and processes in the UNICEF/WHO package Caring for the Sick Child in the Community (referred to as the “standard”). The degree of consistency/inconsistency between national materials and the standard was recorded for: 1) disease/condition covered; 2) danger signs; 3) protocols for referral, treatment, and advice; and 4) training characteristics. This review is intended to inform both national program managers and global technical agencies about existing gaps in following UNICEF/WHO standards.
