Integrated community case management (iCCM) is an equity-focused strategy that extends the reach of health services by providing timely and effective treatment of malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea to children under five in hard-to-reach populations. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Health Organization and UNICEF issued global technical guidance on infection prevention and control protocols among community health workers that was then adapted by countries. This study assessed the effect of the pandemic on service provision, and evaluated the knowledge, attitudes and practices of community-oriented resource persons in an existing iCCM programme in two states in Nigeria.
