Journal Supplement in Health Policy and Planning

TRAction sponsored the publication of a special journal supplement on iCCM policy processes in sub-Saharan Africa in the journal Health Policy and Planning (vol. 30, suppl. 2). The research, led by Dr. Sara Bennett and her team at Johns Hopkins University, reflects on iCCM policy development in multiple sub-Saharan African countries and makes cross-country comparisons that have broad applicability for other public health strategies. The supplement is titled “Integrated Community Case Management: A Lens on Health Policy Processes in Sub-Saharan Africa” and was published online on November 13 and in print on November 19, 2015. It can be accessed here.

Using the lens of iCCM, the supplement presents country case studies of policy development, as well as cross-country analysis. These analyses delve into the specifics of policy change in Burkina Faso, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, and Niger and describe the role of stakeholders and contextual factors in the policy process. The findings and lessons learned from iCCM policy are broadly applicable to other public health policies.
