Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) is a strategy to extend case management of childhood illness beyond health facilities so that more children have access to lifesaving treatments. The iCCM package can differ based on particular contexts, but most commonly includes diarrhea, pneumonia and malaria. Newborn health and malnutrition are also commonly included as a part of iCCM. In the iCCM model, community health workers are identified and trained in diagnosis and treatment of key childhood illnesses, and also in identifying children in need of immediate referral.
This website is a product of the iCCM Task Force. It also provides a forum for answers to questions and discussions of challenges.
CCMCentral.com aims to centralize resources, provide examples of best practices and give access to tools regarding integrated community case management of childhood illness, or iCCM. The website has been developed and is currently managed by the USAID grantee Maternal and Child Survival Program (USAID/MCSP).
