IMCI Chart Booklet (2008 edition) Integrated Management of Childhood Illness World Health Organization WHO United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund UNICEF


The IMCI training materials and chart booklet were originally developed in 1995, and are now being used in more than 100 countries around the world. Over the past decade, new evidence has emerged which has been synthesized and published as "technical updates" in 2006.

This revised version of the chart booklet includes new sections on the management of illness in the first week of a child's life. In addition, the young infant module for IMCI training has been revised accordingly and can be shared on request.

Because there is great demand for including assessment and care of HIV-exposed and HIV-infected children, the chart booklet has been revised separately for high-HIV settings (link at bottom of page). This chart booklet is for use in places where there is not a high prevalence of HIV.

This chart booklet is a job-aid to be used by health workers mostly at first-level health facilities.
