Handbook IMCI Integrated Management of Childhood Illness
The IMCI model handbook provides a detailed explanation of the IMCI case management guidelines. It is organized into seven main parts: overview of the IMCI process; assess and classify the sick child age 2 months up to 5 years; assess and classify the sick young infant age 1 week up to 2 months; identify treatment; treat the sick child or the sick young infant; communicate and counsel; and give follow-up care.
The IMCI charts and related in-service training materials, provided in this handbook are considered to be a generic version. The WHO Department of Child and Adolescent Health and Development created this handbook to help teaching institutions incorporate IMCI into academic programmes for doctors, nurses and other health professionals.
Teaching institutions are advised to adapt the handbook in two ways: (1) to ensure that all text, charts and illustrations are consistent with nationally-adapted IMCI clinical guidelines, and (2) to ensure that its content and format corresponds to the teaching approach used by the institution.
