As a 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.
