Child Survival encompasses a diverse array of areas from malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS diagnosis and treatment, to neonatal health, nutrition, and family planning. MCDI’s child survival work covers a broad spectrum of issues and diseases, but tends to place emphasis on immunization, management of childhood diseases, HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, malaria, maternal and newborn care, pneumonia case management, diarrheal diseases, respiratory infection, and integrated management of childhood illnesses. We have successfully implemented child survival projects in Benin, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Chad, Madagascar, Mozambique, South Africa, and Togo. During each of these projects, MCDI has promoted engagement with community members and organizations by catalyzing the formation of community health committees and training partner organizations to deal with the challenges that surround a child’s development. To this end, our community partners have helped in the development of training materials and delivered essential messages on child survival to their communities. We have also provided support to community-based distributors who work to ensure the availability of anti-malarial drugs, zinc, water purification tablets, and other materials essential to child health. As sustainability is the most important factor in any intervention, innovative community-based financing schemes have been developed and implemented to remove financial barriers to health care access and to ensure the continuing success of health care in these communities.
