The workshop will focus on the joint WHO-UNICEF strategy for IMCI: Integrated Management of Childhood Illness, which includes three components aimed at bettering the health and development of children:

  1. improving performance of health workers in children's health care,
  2. improving the organization and functioning of health centres and hospitals providing children's care, and
  3. improving parental, family and community knowledge and practices for healthy child growth and development.
