DESCRIPTION
The purpose of this guide is to provide operational guidance to design, plan, implement, monitor, and/or advocate for CCM that responds to local needs. It is a “how-to” guide for programs, rather than a source of clinical guidance. Definitive technical guidance for case management can be found in the WHO/UNICEF training package Caring for the sick child in the community, the toolkits included in Community case management essentials, and/or national IMCI task forces. Program managers at the district level, from ministries of health and NGOs, are the primary audience. Central-level planners, advocates, academics, and other international health professionals will also find this guide useful.
