Improving delivery of evidence based care for severely ill children

This project involves taking forward an ambitious research agenda with partners in Kenya's Ministry of Health, its medical schools and international collaborators including the World Health Organisation, The Centre for Health Policy, University of Witswatersrand and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Research is framed around a 3 year, randomised controlled study of an intervention programme to introduce evidence based care in child and newborn health in government hospitals and involves a multidisciplinary team comprising medical researchers, social scientists and economists. The project will inform national and international strategies for introducing the small hospital component of the World Health Organisation's Integrated Management of Childhood Illness strategy now adopted by over 100 low and middle-income countries.
