H17. Training manual on community based pre-referral treatment for severe malaria
Increasing children’s access to life-saving treatment for severe malaria and other common childhood illnesses requires community members who can identify danger signs and know how to respond, and CHVs who can provide pre- treatment. This manual builds on work from our previous programme in Zambia, More MAMaZ (2014-2016) see here, and applies the same approaches for our currently ongoing MAMaZ Against Malaria (MAM). To read more about MAM, please click here.
This training manual outlines a training approach that can be used to:
- Train selected Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) to diagnose and pre-treat severe malaria in young children using rectal artesunate (RAS)
- Train communities to respond promptly and appropriately to severe malaria, and to other common childhood illnesses
