First Team Task —Develop a Work Plan Activities, steps

1. Train facility staff

Dates from … to Responsible persons or groups Resources Indicators of success

2. Help facility staff mobilize communities 3. Obtain needed medicines 4, Help facilities train CDDs • • • • • • Brainstorm a list of key activities needed to implement CDI/iCCM in the LGA/district Divide into LGA/district groupings Produce draft work plan Share with other teams Use feedback to improve on plan Revise plan again at home Actually conduct this planning exercise as a practical component of the training
