Adherence to Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses in Malawi

The Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) protocol was developed to improve the quality of child health care and reduce under-five mortality. Malawi adopted IMCI in 1999, but little is known about how well providers follow the protocol, especially in the private sector. To examine gaps in adherence to the IMCI protocol, this brief analyzes data from the 2013–2014 Malawi Service Provision Assessment of public and private health facilities to provide critical information to improve the quality of sick child care in Malawi.
