Children’s QuestionnaireCARE OF ILLNESS MODULE

Purpose

  • To provide basic data to calculate indicators on
    • Treatment for diarrhoeal disease
    • Treatment and care seeking for pneumonia
    • Sanitary means of excreta disposal for young children

Children’s QuestionnaireCARE OF ILLNESS MODULE

Background Acute Respiratory Infection

  • WHO defines cases of suspected pneumonia as children reported to have an illness with a cough accompanied by fast and/or difficult breathing.
  • Simple cases of cold with a blocked nose are filtered out with a second question: “Were these symptoms due to a problem in the chest or a blocked nose?”
  • If a local term for “rapid breathing” exists, using that term may be the simplest way to obtain cases of ARI that need to be seen by a health care provider.

Background Diarrhoeal Disease

  • Treatment recommendations and indicators have changed over the last ten years.
  • New indicator has been added.

Children’s QuestionnaireCARE OF ILLNESS MODULE

Preparation

  • Definition of appropriate health provider should be defined at country level.
  • Adapt for country-specific term used for the ORS packet and for the pre-packaged ORS fluid. If no pre-packaged ORS is available in the country, delete this category.
  • Include country-specific recommended home fluid. Ingredients promoted by the government for making the recommended home fluid should be reflected in this category.
slide8
Adapt locally to include the country-specific term used for the ORS packet

Adapt locally to include the country-specific recommended home fluid. Ingredients promoted by the government for making the recommended home fluid should be reflected in this category.

Adapt locally to include the country-specific terms used for the pre-packaged ORS fluid. Adapt locally to include the common names/brands for pre-packaged ORS fluids available in the country. If no pre-packaged ORS is available in the country, delete this category.
