The Private Sector Engagement (PSE) and Quality of Care (QoC) subgroups co-hosted a webinar to share results from a SHOPS Plus analysis of Service Provision Assessment (SPA) survey data from seven countries. The analysis examined how well health facilities in those countries adhere to integrated management for childhood illness (IMCI) guidelines for children 2-59 months and young infants under two months. The analysis included all facilities and disaggregated by public and private sector.
The presentation identified critical gaps in adherence to recommended IMCI guidelines. Participants on the call discussed challenges faced by healthcare workers at the facility level, lessons learned, and ways forward to improve integrated, high-quality sick child and young infant care.
