Where do caregivers of children in low and middle-income countries seek care for their sick children, and what are the implications for designing programs? Understanding whether and where caregivers seek advice and treatment outside of the home for their sick children is critical to supporting efforts to prevent child deaths.
On Tuesday, July 10, USAID and its flagship private sector health project, SHOPS Plus, kicked off a four-part webinar series to share what the latest Demographic and Health Survey data from 24 priority countries say about care seeking for three of the most common, treatable child illnesses: malaria, acute respiratory infection, and diarrhea. The global webinar focused on global findings.
