Malaria Consortium upSCALE: iCCM for Improving Child Health

Project Overview

upSCALE supports community health workers (CHWs) in Mozambique to deliver integrated community case management (iCCM) in the remote communities that they serve. The CHWs use a smartphone-based application, built on the CommCare platform, to guide them through the patient consultation. The program adopted CommCare to strengthen communication between CHWs and health facility supervisors. With the Ministry of Health staff now taking on responsibility for content design, training, rollout, and platform hosting, upSCALE has the potential to expand into other areas of the health system, with the goal of improved diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of disease throughout Mozambique.
