Nefra Faltas

Some framing discussion would be helpful here to ensure a shared understanding of what we mean by "Institutionalizing iCCM Toolkit" (vs. "iCCM Toolkit").
Prudence Hamade
42:10
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
Prudence Hamade
42:18
Lessons learnt included
Prudence Hamade

1) supportive supervision using a check list and a quality improvement tool improved motivation of both HC located supervisers and the supervisees
Salim Sadruddin
49:02
Can I jump in?
Nefra Faltas
49:36
We should be using the Addis report as our starting point, I think...
Prudence Hamade
49:45
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
Prudence Hamade
50:16
do we need to change the focus from children under five to older children as well
Anna Bowen

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.
Salim Sadruddin
57:59
It would be good to look at the CHW AIM tool.
Marion Subah
58:11
I would just like to emphasize the importance of country context as on Institutionalization.
Nefra Faltas
01:02:44
Agree, @Marion...
Kevin Tweni
01:07:02
I appreciate the great discussion. Somehow I was knocked off the network. Could you kindly share the recording? In support for the next steps.
Anne Linn
01:08:16
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
Sita Strother
01:10:02
Kevin, we will be sure to share the recording and slides with everyone who registered!
Dyness Kasungami

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.
Salim Sadruddin
01:13:05
@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
Salim Sadruddin
01:13:46
David Marsh used to say, no commodities, no iCCM
Anna Bowen
01:14:18
So true.
Nefra Faltas

Prudence Hamade
01:15:05
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
Eric Swedberg
01:15:08
Yes, I'm sure there would be people interested working in a sub-group on this
Dyness Kasungami
01:15:09
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.
Dyness Kasungami
