Integrated community case management (iCCM) has proven to be an effective strategy for expanding the treatment of diarrhea, pneumonia, and malaria, which are the leading causes of child mortality and result in nearly 44% of deaths worldwide in children under five years old.

This report describes the results of the testing in Senegal. The main purpose of this work was to test the tool, and only a small sample of facilities and community health workers (CHWs) was used for that purpose. That sample is too small for the resulting data to be representative of the program as a whole, and the results of the modeling shown in this report should, therefore, be considered as illustrative. Nevertheless, we believe that these results can be useful to the MOPH and its partners, and the figures used in the tool can be updated as desired.
