Integrated Management of Neonatal and Childhood Illness

Health workers also can be trained in Integrated Management of Neonatal and Childhood Illnesses to prevent, recognize, and manage problems such as ophthalmia neonatorum and cord infections, among others. Sick newborns are screened with the Integrated Management of Neonatal and Childhood Illnesses case management algorithm for infants 2 weeks of age or younger. This approach assesses, classifies, treats, and refers newborns when necessary and ensures that mothers are appropriately counseled in breastfeeding, nutrition, and homecare.
