RAcE Multi-Country Dissemination Meeting

Abuja, Nigeria

24-27 October 2017

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.

The objective of the meeting was to share the evidence generated by the RAcE Programme to help countries to catalyse scale-up of high-quality, national iCCM programmes to reduce child mortality, specifically:

  • To share iCCM implementation experience, household survey and final evaluation results to inform and influence national policies and programmes; and
  • To share the experience from the iCCM sustainability roadmap initiative, the results of operational research and program learning from RAcE supported countries.
