Child health

PAHO/WHO promotes the design of effective and integrated approaches to child health, such as the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) Strategy, geared at care of children between 0-5 years to reduce mortality and morbidity. The IMCI Strategy integrates the best health measures available to promote healthy lifestyles, prevent sickness (through vaccination, proper alimentation, etc.), and detect in a timely manner and effectively treat the most frequent and prevalent illnesses.
