This film provides a compelling case for scaling up integrated community case management (iCCM) interventions across Nigeria and in countries in sub-Saharan Africa with similar context. It draws on evidence of the impact of iCCM in saving children’s lives in remote communities Nigeria, through the Rapid Access Expansion (RAcE) programme.
The RAcE programme, funded by the Government of Canada through the World Health Organization is supporting the scale-up of iCCM in five malaria-endemic countries in sub-Saharan Africa. In Nigeria, RAcE is led by the Ministry of Health in Niger and Abia states, in collaboration with selected implementation partners. Malaria Consortium is implementing iCCM in underserved communities in six local government areas in Niger State.
RAcE Nigeria has been successfully demonstrating that integrated community case management (iCCM) interventions to improve access to, and the quality of, community-level management of childhood malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea, and screening for malnutrition, are feasible and can be scaled up.
