Hello! Harriet Napier, CHAI
You were breaking up...
no you are breaking up a lot Larry
maybe turn your video off, Larry,
its breaking up for me
Please feel free to put your questions in the chat!
What is meant by tools> does it include M&E tools OR includes training, supervision and SCM materials, job adis etc
I am Marion Subah, Country Director, Last Mile Health, Liberia
Some framing discussion would be helpful here to ensure a shared understanding of what we mean by "Institutionalizing iCCM Toolkit" (vs. "iCCM Toolkit").
MC implemented a pilot project by training malaria volunteers already in place but with much reduced workload to diagnose and treat pneumonia diarrhoea and malnutrition This was accompanied by a community engagement intervention called community dialogues
Lessons learnt included
1) supportive supervision using a check list and a quality improvement tool improved motivation of both HC located supervisers and the supervisees
Can I jump in?
We should be using the Addis report as our starting point, I think...
In order to address malaria elimination and improved surveillance and data for use by the National malaria programme All age groups need to be encouraged to attend the community volunteers in remote areas Improved supervision aimproved data quality and Malaria volunteers satisfaction. Community engagement and community enhanced decision making improved uptake of community volunteers services. Children older than five are also at risk and community members could not understand why services were limited to children under five. Institutionalisation requires work across different departments of the MOH which is often very challenging as Malaria often has funds Child health does not
do we need to change the focus from children under five to older children as well
Hi, Larry! Thanks for your presentation and this work. I am really interested in supply chain for iCCM-- the full complement of diagnostics and treatments, plus infection prevention/waste management, etc.-- and would love for your team to dig into lessons learned/best practices from some countries that are succeeding in getting supplies on time and right quantities to CHWs. Also, and this is likely linked to the above, am curious about best practices for establishing strong support/communication/referral mechanisms between CHWs and their associated HFs.
It would be good to look at the CHW AIM tool.
I would just like to emphasize the importance of country context as on Institutionalization.
I appreciate the great discussion. Somehow I was knocked off the network. Could you kindly share the recording? In support for the next steps.
Given Salim's great point about targeting district-level managers, it would be great to take advantage of IM's district level presence for stakeholder consultations
Kevin, we will be sure to share the recording and slides with everyone who registered!
Instead of iCCM operations manual, we might consider a community health manual so that it feeds into the concept of institutionalization within the health system and in this case "community health system" rather than a vertical program.
@Dyness: I agree with your point, But we have to make sure that iCCM (which has special requirements) doesn't get lost in the "Community Health" maual
David Marsh used to say, no commodities, no iCCM
from a commodity point of view the fact that the Global fund still will not provide funding for pneumonia and diarrhea commodities is a big problem
Yes, I'm sure there would be people interested working in a sub-group on this
Absolutely Salim... it is a continuing area of learning concerning managing a comprehensive program without losing out. Targeted program tracking based on local data helps among other things.
working closely with the M&E subgroup
You can also email email@example.com if you would like to be more involved in a sub-working group on this work stream!
Thanks everyone for their very useful input. Look forward to working with you on these activities. firstname.lastname@example.org
