In many countries, vitamin A supplements are distributed through an integrated approach of twice yearly outreach services, often called “Child Health Weeks”, aimed at reaching the greatest number of children to improve their health and survival. This document provides a framework that can be used at national level, to create a country-specific manual for use at district level: A Guide for Planning, Implementing, and Monitoring Child Health Weeks for District Health Managers. The manual is intended to assist district level managers to plan, implement and monitor child health weeks or similar regular twice-yearly events.
