Since 2009, Malaria Consortium has been supporting the Ministry of Health in Uganda through training and equipping community health workers (CHWs) to diagnose and treat malaria, diarrhoea and pneumonia at community level to drastically reduce the number of children dying from these preventable and treatable conditions. This programme is known as integrated community case management (iCCM)

This film follows caregivers, CHWs, health facility workers and District authorities who recount how life was and how it has changed since the introduction of the iCCM programme in their areas. www.malariaconsortium.org
