Despite strong evidence that integrated community case management (iCCM) can reduce childhood illness related morbidity and mortality, the sustainability of iCCM projects remains a challenge. From 2014-2017, Malaria Consortium implemented the Rapid Access Expansion (RAcE) iCCM programme in Niger state to improve coverage of diagnostic, treatment and referral services for malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea among children 2-59 months.
This presentation details Malaria Consortium's evaluation of the effectiveness of community engagement activities and documents the scale and monetary value of community support for iCCM implementation in six local government areas in Niger state. The presentation was delivered at the 67th annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in New Orleans in October 2018.
