The Rapid Access Expansion Programme (RAcE), financed through Global Affairs Canada, is a five year programme to implement and document integrated community case management (iCCM) in five high-burden sub-Saharan Africa countries – the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Niger and Nigeria.
Hosted by the Federal Ministry of Health of Nigeria and the World Health Organization, the four-day RAcE Multi-Country Dissemination Meeting gathered ministry of health, non-governmental organization, academic, and international public health representatives to highlight achievements, crystallise lessons learned, and elaborate sustainability roadmaps.
