Malaria Consortium has been implementing an integrated community case management (iCCM) programme for the diagnosis and treatment of malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea in children 6-59 months in South Sudan since 2010. A nutrition component was integrated into this programme in 2011 in recognition of the inextricable link between health and nutrition.
This learning brief describes the model Malaria Consortium is currently implementing to deliver community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM) using the iCCM structures in Aweil Centre county in Aweil state and Aweil West county in Lol state.
The learning from the evaluation of this model serves as the basis for recommendations for future programming, in an effort to improve and sustain the delivery of CMAM in Aweil and Lol states.Keywords: [South Sudan][Child and maternal health][Community delivery]
