Scaling up Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM): InScale
way of increasing access to treatment for sick children where health services
are geographically and financially inaccessible, several African countries are
currently investing in community based agents (CBAs) to deliver integrated
treatment with iCCM programs. However,
previous experiences have shown that motivation, retention and performance can
hinder the effectiveness of CBA based programmes.
inScale aims to rapidly augment the impact and reach of iCCM in
Mozambique and Uganda by developing and testing feasible and acceptable
solutions to improve the motivation, retention and performance of the
volunteers who implement iCCM.
The study is a collaborative trial between the Malaria Consortium, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the Institute of Child Health, with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. ICH will lead the design of the interventions and will provide general technical support for the trial.
