Designed for doctors, nurses and other health workers responsible for the care of children, these guidelines focus on the management of major causes of childhood mortality in developing countries, including:

Neonatal illness, including low birth weight, prematurity, sepsis, perinatal asphyxia, and congenital anomalies

Pneumonia and other breathing problems, including bronchiolitis, asthma and tuberculosis

Diarrhoea, acute and chronic

Fever, including malaria, meningitis, septicaemia and rheumatic fever

Severe acute malnutrition

Surgical problems, including trauma and burns

The app includes guidance on the stages of management for every child: Triage and Emergency treatment, History and Examination, Laboratory investigations, Supportive care and Monitoring, Discharge planning and Follow-up.

With this WHO e-Pocketbook of Hospital Care for Children app, all guidelines can be viewed offline and will be updated regularly.

This app has been developed by the World Health Organisation, The Royal Childrens Hospital Melbourne, the University of Melbourne and Murdoch Childrens Research Institute.
