The Government of Canada (Global Affairs Canada) has provided a grant to WHO to implement the Rapid Access Expansion (RAcE) programme (2011/12 to 2017/18). Through this initiative, WHO is sub-granting NGOs to support high burden countries to increase coverage of diagnostic, treatment, and referral services for the major killers of children under 5 (diarrhoea, pneumonia and malaria), through the scale up of Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM). WHO is also working to generate evidence to inform WHO policy recommendations and guidance on iCCM. WHO is implementing activities in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Niger, Nigeria, Mozambique and Malawi, all of which have a demonstrated capacity to implement community case management of malaria and iCCM programming. Funds are being provided to WHO headquarters through a grant arrangement. The WHO/Global Malaria Programme RAcE Geneva secretariat manages the technical and operational functions of the grant. WHO regional and country offices provide ongoing support to the sub-grantees hired to implement activities.
