Using a newly developed case-management job aid based upon the WHO Integrated Management of Childhood Illness guide, community health care providers (CHCPs) in Bangladesh were trained to measure changes in knowledge. After the training, the CHCPs clearly improved their knowledge and provided better quality care to patients. Results from this study could be used to improve community health programs in other communities, particularly in those that are struggling with poor quality care.
