Complications Of the children managed with ALMANACH, one child with likely viral infection on day 0 was brought by the caretaker on day 5 to a referral hospital where he was diagnosed with cellulitis.

Descriptive statistics were done for numerical data by mean and standard deviation, while they were done for categorical data by number and percentage. In the intervention arm, a standardized case report form CRF was completed during the paper phase of the study.

Turn recording back on. The rate of clinical failure with ALMANACH was expected to be equivalent to that of the control arm, because the standard practice in Tanzania is to prescribe antibiotics to most of the febrile patients, especially when mRDT are available [ 22 ].

The only safe and rational solution is thus to evaluate them again when they do not improve.


First, a precise evaluation of the clinical outcome of children when managed with the IMCI algorithm is lacking, which leaves a doubt about its real benefit. All children included in this study chhart subjected to complete history taking and clinical examination. Conceived and designed the experiments: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Introduction About 7 million children under 5 years of age die each year despite the availability of effective low-cost interventions [ 1 ].

He was hospitalized for 10 days, received antibiotics and had recovered when visited on day The overuse of antimalarials was limited, but varying degrees of antibiotics over-prescription were observed [ 18 ].

However, no study on the clinical outcome of children strictly managed according to IMCI has been performed in the past, so such results could chatr be used as gold standard.

This mortality impact is plausible, since substantial improvements occurred in quality of care provided to sick children in health facilities implementing IMCI. The core of the IMCI strategy is integrated case management of the most common childhood problems, with a focus on the most important causes of death.

Results of a multi-country exploratory survey of approaches and methods for IMCI case management training. Caretakers whose children did not turn up at day 7 were reminded by phone about the visit and, if not reached, visited at home.

Neonates less than 28 days of age were excluded from this study. Analysis was done for qualitative data using Chi square test.
