Scaling Up Integrated Community Case Management: Lessons from the Rapid Access Expansion (RAcE) Programme in 5 sub-Saharan African Countries

The book documents the WHO's scale-up of iCCM of pneumonia, diarrhoea and malaria among children under five years of age in sub-Saharan Africa. The Rapid Access Expansion Programme (RAcE) had two main objectives: to contribute to the reduction of child mortality due to malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea by increasing access to diagnostics, treatment and referral services, and to stimulate policy updates in participating countries and catalyze scale-up of integrated community case management (iCCM) through documentation and dissemination of best practices. The book provides evidence on impact and improving coverage of iCCM in routine health systems, and opportunities and challenges of implementing and sustaining delivery of iCCM at scale.
