UK Aid Match 4: health - integrated community case management (ICCM) in Nigeria
UK Aid Match 4 focused on Integrated Community Case Management (ICCM) of childhood illnesses - malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea - in four Local Government Areas in Benue State, Nigeria. Taking an ICCM approach tested the feasibility of removing simple diagnosis and treatment from the health centre setting, to the community setting. This aimed to provide faster treatment for simple issues, creating faster referral and more capacity at the health centre to deal with complicated issues.
The project aimed to increase knowledge of, access to, and uptake of quality services and interventions to reduce child mortality and morbidity rates. The project is named the Partnership for Improved Child Health (PICH).
