IMNCI approach has been mentioned as the centerpiece of newborn and child health strategy. As more and more physicians and health workers are being trained in IMNCI young infants and sick children are being referred to first referral facilities. Medical Officers and Staff Nurses working in these facilities would be responsible for providing optimum care to the referred sick young infants and children. Hence building the capacity of the health workers in these facilities to manage sick neonates and children acquires greater importance. Facility Based Care for severely ill children is complementary to primary care for providing a continuum of care for severely ill children. Good quality inpatient care for children is required at these facilities to increase the impact of appropriate primary care interventions on child survival.
Capacity building of Medical Officers and Staff Nurses also needs to be addressed simultaneously to provide quality care to sick children and newborns at facilities. It was therefore very essential to prepare standard guidelines for managing these cases in a first referral facility keeping in view available resources. Keeping in view the acute shortage of specialists (pediatricians) at facilities, it becomes important to build skills of the health staff at these facilities to manage referred sick newborn and children. F-IMNCI is such a package which enhances the skills of the health staff.
