Malaria Consortium has been piloting integrated community case management (iCCM) in Sagaing Region, Myanmar. iCCM is an approach which includes diagnosis and treatment of three diseases, malaria, pneumonia and diarrhea, and in Myanmar we combined this with screening for malnutrition. In remote communities without any government health staff, Malaria Consortium retrained existing malaria volunteers in iCCM to deliver this essential healthcare to children under five in their communities.
The iCCM project was funded by UK aid from the UK Government and Vitol Foundation.
