The IMCI reference library of selected materials was developed for use by teachers at medical, nursing and other health professional schools, and by persons who assist countries in adapting the generic IMCI clinical guidelines to local circumstances.

The reference library consists of an annotated bibliography and a CD-ROM with the full-text of selected materials that constitute the evidence base behind the generic IMCI clinical guidelines. The document is not a comprehensive overview of existing literature on the diseases included in IMCI. It is a working document that provides the technical justification for the IMCI clinical guidelines - and that will be regularly reviewed and updated
