Inter-country technical consultation on improvement of diarrhoea management in the context of child survival and technical updates of the IMCI guidelines



It is over seven years since IMCI has been introduced and much has been learnt through the adaptation and implementation processes in countries. The current technical updates have compiled the experience learnt and the new research findings.

Research results are emerging with potential implications for updating the technical guidelines of IMCI. The technical updates are provided for use by countries whenever there are opportunities to revise the country IMCI adaptations. It will be necessary to have a series of technical updates as new research findings become available. The current technical updates have compiled new evidence to inform countries immediately about IMCI adaptations and recommend adaptations in six areas.
