14.3.7  Finishing the course of treatment

You should tell the mother that while the child is getting better, she should continue to treat the child. This is important because the bacteria or the malaria parasite may still be present even though the signs of disease are gone. Therefore all of the drugs in a course of treatment must be finished, even if the child appears better.

14.3.6  If more than one drug is prescribed, collect, count and package each drug separately

14.3.8  Check the mother’s understanding before she leaves the health post
