Linking Nutrition & (integrated) Community Case Management A review of operational experiences

Author: Lynette Friedman & Cathy Wolfheim
Year: 2014
Resource type: Research

There are multiple converging and competing points of view on whether and how best to
link iCCM and nutrition interventions. The objective of the current review is to map out and
describe operational experiences in linking nutrition and Community Case Management/
integrated Community Case Management interventions, with the goal of identifying emerging
lessons and identifying gaps in knowledge.
The decision to undertake this review was an outcome of a meeting held in London in May
2014 to examine potential linkages between iCCM, CHWs, and malnutrition. That meeting
concluded with a statement of intent that nutrition should be effectively integrated into iCCM,
and an agreement to work towards building and sharing the evidence base for effective service
delivery in different contexts. Moreover, curiosity about the current status of implementing
linked activities had been stimulated at the iCCM Evidence Symposium in Ghana in March
2014, with the presentation of a cross-sectional survey conducted by UNICEF to explore iCCM
policy and implementation in sub–Saharan Africa.
