This short pictoral brochure was developed for and with the Interagency Working Group on Household and Community IMCI, to support advocacy and explain, in simple terms, what comprises community IMCI. The brochure reflects that basic essential health care and preventive measures necessary for child survival should be considered a right of all children, and that community interventions are needed if these rights are to be first appreciated, and then (through advocacy, demand and appropriate provider and community response) realised. The brochure is visually attractive and compelling.
