15.2.4  Give follow-up care

Several treatments in the Assess and Classify chart require the mother to return to the health post with her child for a follow-up visit. At a follow-up visit you can see whether the drug or other treatment that was prescribed for the child has been effective, and that the child’s health is improving. The Give Follow-up Care section (page 38 in the chart booklet) of the Treat the Child chart describes the steps for conducting each type of follow-up visit.
