Experiences

The overall objective of using ICATT and IMPACtt in teaching and training is to support the implementation of the IMCI strategy and IMPAC. To date, experiences with different training approaches for ICATT and, to a lesser extent, also IMPACtt are available from different countries.

ICATT in Tanzania
Main focus of early use of ICATT in Tanzania will be to strengthen the in-service training of first level health workers in Tanzania through close collaboration with the Ifakara Health Research and Development Centre (IHRDC). Initially a standard IMCI course will be conducted using ICATT in autumn 2008. After its evaluation further ICATT-based training courses for both in-service and pre-service settings will be planned together with Tanzanian partners.
