Management of Sick Children by Community Health Workers: Intervention models and programme examples

An estimated 10.6 million children under five still die each year from preventable or treatable diseases. Many of these deaths could be prevented through early, appropriate and low-cost treatment of sick children in the home or community. This joint report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization examines approaches for the community management of children with signs of malaria or pneumonia, specifically antimicrobial treatment, through the use of community health workers or their equivalent.
