This Briefing Note describes a baseline and an endline survey conducted by Malaria Consortium to measure the impact of iCCM on improving health seeking behaviour and access to treatment for children in two regions. The surveys aimed to establish whether health seeking behaviours for malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea among children under five improved over time and assess whether access to a VHT or public health facility increased.
Results from the survey show that iCCM is a feasible intervention for increasing access to effective treatment for the most common childhood illnesses. This Briefing Note recommends that for these benefits to be sustained and for iCCM to be scaled up across the country, more involvement of all stakeholders is needed.
