ALMANACH (Algorithms for the Management of Acute Childhood illnesses) is an electronic application for medical practitioners, including doctors, nurses, and community health workers, available on smartphones and tablets. The application assists them to seek and ask for the conditions and symptoms of the child, prompts on the need to perform a complete physical examination and laboratory tests, prescribe the most effective treatment and, as the case may be, refer the child to another health structure if treatment is not available in the facility. The tool also provides information on medical resources at disposal in the locality, including medicines, health staff and laboratory testing.
