    Our country made a significant progress in child

    mortality reduction and received the UN MDG Award

    for its success in MDG4. IMCI program is playing the

    vital role to sustain and improve universal child

    immunization.

    It is indeed a great pleasure for me to know that MIS

    of DGHS is going to publish the 4th issue of IMCI

    Newsletter. This newsletter is a very useful

    publication as it enables us to get facility based

    graphical data on childhood illness of the whole

    country in a concised and understandable way.

    I hope that this newsletter will give some

    programmatic direction to policy-makers and program

    managers and to understand the current situation to

    undertake interventions for the future about the IMCI

    services in Bangladesh. Finally, I would like to thank

    everyone who worked hard directly and behind the

    screen for publishing this newsletter successfully.

    & Line Director, Management Information System (MIS) Directorate General of Health Services

    Mohakhali, Dhaka

    Our country has made a remarkable progress in

    improving the health of children. In fact, as per

    recent estimate, we already achieved MDG4. The

    recognition to Bangladesh's success in improving

    child health came much earlier through the UN

    MDG4 Award in 2010.

    It is my great pleasure that the 4th issue of the

    IMCI newsletter is going to be published from the

    Department of MIS-Health of DGHS. The contents

    of this newsletter will not only include the result of

    the performance assessment of IMCI services in

    facilities but will also encompass other areas of

    child and neonatal health, including community

    IMCI. The team associated with this newsletter

    made very sincere efforts to improve the quality of

    the contents than those of the previous issues. An

    attempt was made to analyze the data received

    during the reporting period to understand the care-

    seeking and morbidity pattern of the sick under-

    five children attending the IMCI-designated

    facilities. I like to thank the entire team of IMCI

    section for their sincere support and cooperation in

    publishing this newsletter. I also wish to

    congratulate the entire team of MIS-Health whose

    relentless work and efforts have made this

    possible. I also convey my thanks to all the

    managers, doctors, paramedics, and other service

    providers and staffs who helped in various ways

    and thus enabled us to publish this newsletter.

    I express my gratefulness to the Director General of

    Health Services and Director, PHC, for their continuous

    support and advice in accomplishing our tasks. I

    extend my special thanks to UNICEF for their

    cooperation as well as technical and financial support

    in publishing this newsletter. I congratulate the editorial

    board for their success in reviewing the contents of this

    newsletter despite various constraints. The attempt will

    be successful if we can use the information for the

    betterment of our children who deserve quality and

    equitable health services.

    and Adolescent Health (MNC&AH) Directorate General of Health Services

    I am happy to know that the Management Information

    System (MIS) of the Directorate General of Health

    Services (DGHS) is going to publish the 4th issue of IMCI

    Newsletter. This publication has now become a necessary

    source of information containing statistics on child health

    aspects of the health sector.

    I congratulate the MIS-Health and IMCI program as well

    as the health managers and service providers at different

    levels for their reporting from the IMCI facilities for

    publication of the newsletter. I would like to give thanks to

    our development partners, specially UNICEF, UNFPA and

    WHO for their financial and technical support for this

    important task in the child health sector.

    I expect that the IMCI Newsletter will be helpful for all

    concerned and the Newsletter will be published regularly.

  • Introduction Mortality in children younger than 5 years (under-5 mortality) remains high in Bangladesh at 57 in 1000 live-births, despite declines over the past decade. Pneumonia, diarrhoea, malnutrition, and measles account for more than half (52%) of these deaths. Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) is a strategy developed and promoted by WHO and UNICEF for reducing childhood morbidity and mortality and promoting healthy growth and development. In 1998, the Government of Bangladesh adopted Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) strategy to reduce these deaths and improve child health and development. The IMCI strategy through HPNSDP was designed to include coordinated activities within two objectives: (1) to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with the major causes of diseases in under five children through quality case management, and (2) too promote healthy growth and development by preventing diseases and promoting healthy practices through counseling the mother and caretakers.

    Newborn Health Reducing Neonatal mortality and ensure health of the newborn is one the main target of IMCI section. National Neonatal Strategy & Guidelines has developed and Standard Operation Protocol (SOP) has formulated. Implementation of Neonatal Action Plan has started. Twelve Special Care Newborn Unit (SCANU) in the District Hospitals and Medical Colleges are functioning. A total of 41 SCANU will be established by 2015.

    IMCI has 3 (three) components 1. Improving case management skills of health workers 2. Improving the health system 3. Improving family and community practices

    A large number of childhood morbidity and mortality (every year around 10 million children die before they reach their fifth birthdays) in the developing countries is caused by five conditions: acute respiratory infections (mostly pneumonia), diarrhoea, measles, malaria, or malnutrition. The Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) strategy encompasses a range of interventions to prevent and manage this major childhood illness, both in health facilities and in the home. . In spite of various disease-specific control programs in operation, there has not been significant reduction in childhood morbidity and mortality. In response to this challenge, WHO/UNICEF proposed a comprehensive single efficient and effective approach to manage childhood illnesses, i.e. Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI).

    After adaptation of WHO generic modules Bangladesh had piloted the IMCI strategy in 3 Upazilas (Matlab, Chandpur, Dhamrai, Dhaka and Kahaloo, Bogra) in the year 2002. After completion of pilot activities in December 2002 a joint National-International Experts Review of early implementation phase was held in February 2003. Based on the recommendations of the review, Bangladesh has started expansion of IMCI. Facility IMCI has expanded in 410 Upazilas up to December 2012. Ten training centers for IMCI have been established where the Clinical Management Training (11-days CMT) is ongoing for all types of service providers (doctors, nurses, paramedics) from selected upazilas. We have also started the process of developing and introducing community-IMCI. A national strategy paper on community IMCI has been prepared to provide directions and guidelines on the introduction, adaptation and implementation of C-IMCI. C-IMCI has expanded in 150 upazilas.
