Arlington, Virginia, Partnership for Child Health Care, Basic Support for Institutionalizing Child Survival [BASICS], 1997.  p. (Report; USAID Contract No. HRN-C-00-93-00031-00)Childhood illnesses such as diarrhea, acute respiratory infections, measles, malaria and malnutrition continue to be major contributors to child mortality in the year 2020 unless significantly more effort is applied to their control. The Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) algorithm is considered by the WHO to be one of the most effective strategies in the control of these diseases. A workshop was conducted in July 14-19, 1997, which brought together clinical experts from the concerned countries to discuss the practical aspects of IMCI adaptation as well as to continue the discussion on the feasibility of implementation of the IMCI algorithm in the selected region. This report summarizes the outcome from the workshop discussions based on the information collected through the circulated questionnaires and data from other available sources. These include possible adaptations of IMCI guidelines to consider, identification of areas where additional information is needed, technical points to consider in individual country adaptations, recommendations of the meeting in this regard, and recommendations for steps to be taken with regard to implementation of IMCI strategy. Overall recommendations for the further action for IMCI course adaptation and implementation are presented at the end of this report.
