      The World Health Organization (WHO) developed the integrated management of childhood illness (IMCI) strategy to reduce mortality and morbidity and to improve quality of care by improving the delivery of a variety of curative and preventive medical and behavioral interventions at health facilities, at home, and in the community. Introduction. Despite a substantial increase in development assistance for health during the past decade, most low-income countries are unlikely to reach the health-related Millennium Development Goals. 1 Only ten of 67 countries with high child mortality rates are on track to meet the fourth Millennium Development Goal—a two-thirds reduction of mortality in children Cited by:
