Effectiveness and Cost-effectiveness of Quality Improvement Interventions for Integrated Management of Newborn and Childhood Illness in Northern Uganda

The study results clearly demonstrate that IMNCI is an appropriate target for quality improvement interventions in Uganda and other similar settings. Improvement strategies focused on group problem solving and strengthening local clinical and improvement capacities can improve access, efficiency, and effectiveness of IMNCI in primary care settings of sub-Saharan African countries. Scaling up these strategies would result in associated short- and long-term health and economic benefits for patients and society and would enhance national and global efforts to improve pediatric quality of care.
