This is the final project report for the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) grant to Malaria Consortium for the project “Improving access for under-fives to life saving treatment through integrated community case management for malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea”, which was implemented from March 2009 to March 2013. The purpose of this four year project has been to provide prompt and effective integrated community based case management (ICCM) of the major febrile childhood illnesses: pneumonia (acute respiratory infection), malaria, and diarrhoea in underserved rural areas of Uganda, Zambia, Mozambique, and South Sudan. ICCM was implemented by Community Health Workers (CHWs), who were supported and supervised by the formal health service to provide the service for children within their own communities. The goal was to contribute to a reduction in under-five mortality with a target of reducing all cause under-five mortality (post and peri-natal) up to 35 percent and to avert up to 30,000 child deaths.
