This Child and Adolescent Health Strategy, attempts to guide the MOPH in the implementation of the critical interventions that have a major impact on mortality of mothers, infants and children receive greatest attention for the period 2009-2013. The primary focus of many of the interventions is children under five years of age, since they have the highest mortality from the cited conditions. However, many of the interventions are equally successful in treating or preventing illness in older children and adolescents. Ensuring delivery of curative and preventive services at health facilities and in the community makes these services available to children of all ages.
