iCCM aims to improve coverage of diagnostic, treatment, and referral services for malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea among children from two to 59 months.
• Despite strong evidence that iCCM of childhood illnesses can reduce morbidity and mortality, sustainability of iCCM projects remains a challenge. Community ownership and support are important for sustainability.
• From 2014-17, Malaria Consortium implemented the Rapid Access Expansion (RAcE) iCCM programme in Niger state, which sought to improve access to case management services for children from two to 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 of Niger State.
This presentation was delivered at the 67th annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in New Orleans in October 2018.Childhood illnesses | Community delivery | Case Management | iCCM
