Short Course in Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses

Only R 2 500.00 (incl VAT)


Every year, nearly 11 million children die before their fifth birthday. In response to this challenge the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) was developed - a strategy designed to reduce child mortality and morbidity in developing countries. The approach focuses on the major causes of deaths in children through improving case management skills of health workers, strengthening the health system and addressing family and community practices.

IMCI has become a main child survival strategy in almost all countries in the African region, creating a unique opportunity to scale up health interventions. This refresher course is developed to upscale the knowledge of healthcare workers on IMCI.
