    The WHO Department of Child and Adolescent Health and Development (CAH) has developed and made available a range of tools and materials to support the implementation of Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI). Many continue to be modified and expanded in the light of country experience and research findings. The materials include: clinical guidelines and training materials for first-level heath facilities, a guide to support the adaptation of IMCI clinical guidelines and training materials to specific country needs, guidelines for conducting follow-up visits to recently trained health workers, a breastfeeding counselling course, and a course to train health workers from first-level health facilities in managing drug supplies. In addition, the Department currently supports a range of initiatives, described below, to strengthen the implementation of the IMCI strategy. These focus on general management issues and the three components of the strategy – improving health workers’ skills, improving the health system to support IMCI and improving family and community practices.
