The guide aims to help countries to introduce IMCI into pre-service training.

The guide suggests main tasks that should be done at national (or regional) level and at the level of the teaching institution for each phase.

Different activities that can be implemented in order to achieve the objectives of each task are described. For each task, the following information is provided in order to help countries select appropriate activities: objectives, suggested timing, who should be responsible or involved, description of the task, and activities and materials suggested to carry out the task.
