Programme Cooperation Agreement with Government of Uganda
The ICCM Central Project aims to reduce under five child mortality by supporting the implementation of an effective and replicable community based treatment system for childhood malaria, pneumonia and diarrhea and newborn health (ICCM: Integrated Community Case Management), through community volunteers known as Village Health Teams (VHTs). This project, funded by UNICEF, runs initially for a two and a half year period from July 2010 until December 2012, although there is a possibility of extension. The project is to be carried out in eight districts in the Central region of Uganda, namely Wakiso, Mpigi, Butambala, Gomba, Masaka, Bukomansimbi, Lwengo and Kalungu. The project will be implemented through the Ministry of Health (MoH) structures at national, district and community levels, particularly the Maternal and Child Health Division (MCH), National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP), Health Education Division and District Health Teams.
