Rural communities in western Myanmar are often poorly served by the country’s public health system. After training volunteers to diagnose and treat common childhood illnesses in children under five and screen for malnutrition, Malaria Consortium is now scaling up the integrated community case management approach from three to six townships of Sagaing region. The project will strengthen support for volunteers to further develop their skills, improve the ability of basic health staff to provide the necessary supervision, and address shortage of stocks for rapid diagnostic tests and medicines.
