New grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

19 January 2010

A consortium, including the Centre for International and Health and Development, has received a $10 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to demonstrate how government-led integrated community case management (iCCM) programmes can be scaled-up in Uganda and Mozambique. The group is led by the Malaria Consortium and includes the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Straight Talk Foundation, N’Weti and Software Factory. The programme will test interventions to enhance their retention and performance of community based agents (CBAs). The overall aim of the programme is to promote uptake of iCCM to 50% coverage.
