WHO RAcE - A Programmatic Analysis of integrated Community Case Management (iCCM): A Multicountry Systems-Wide Analysis of the RAcE (Rapid Access Expansion) iCCM Programme in sub-Saharan Africa

Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) is an equity-based approach to childhood illness designed to provide children living in remote areas with access to case management for pneumonia, diarrhea, and malaria at the community level. The Rapid Access Expansion Programme (RAcE), steered by the World Health Organization (WHO) and a consortium of partners, takes this strategy a step further through extensive implementation in Malawi, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and a strong focus on building country ownership and capacity for catalysing scale-up of iCCM activities.

We are engaged in partnership with the WHO and country partners in leading the development and implementation of a multisectoral systems-wide analysis of the RAcE program, its influence within the health system and on health outcomes for children. The research aims to provide important evidence for the reduction of child mortality and the fulfilment of SDG 3, and targets 3.2, 3.3 and 3.8.
