Excerpt
INTRODUCTION Pneumonia, diarrhoea, malaria, measles and malnutrition cause more than 70% of the deaths in children under five years of age. There are feasible and effective ways that health workers in clinics can care for children with these illnesses and prevent most of these deaths. WHO and UNICEF used updated technical findings to describe management of these illnesses in a set of integrated (combined) guidelines, instead of separate guidelines for each illness. They then developed this training package to teach the integrated case management process to health workers who see sick children. Health workers have experience treating common childhood illnesses. They are often trained using separate, disease-specific guidelines, such as guidelines for treating malaria, or guidelines for managing diarrhoea. However, they may have difficulty combining different guidelines when caring for a sick child with several problems. They may not know which problems are most important to treat. With limited time and drugs, health workers may not be able to identify and treat all of a sick child's problems. There are important relationships between the illnesses. For example, repeated diarrhoea1 episodes often lead to malnutrition; diarrhoea which often accompanies or follows measles is particularly severe. Therefore, effective case management needs to consider all of a child's symptoms
