Final iCCM Roadmap Malawi 2017 to 2021

The integrated community case management programme (iCCM) has arisen out of efforts by the Ministry of
Health since 2007 to scale evidence-based high impact interventions to reduce under-5 mortality. In 2013, the
World Health Organization (WHO), through the Global Malaria Programme, launched the Rapid Access
Expansion (RAcE) Programme in five countries—Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Malawi, Mozambique,
Niger, and Nigeria—to increase access to treatment for malaria, pneumonia, and diarrheal disease among
children under five years through scaled-up iCCM programmes. These efforts have contributed to a reduction in
under-5 mortality rate of 60% between 1990 and 2013 and which has continued to fall through 2015.
