AbstractDuring the mid-1990s, the World Health Organization, in collaboration with UNICEF and other agencies and institutions, developed a strategy known as the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI). The objectives of the strategy are to reduce death and the frequency and severity of illness and disability, and to contribute to improved growth and development in children less than 5 years old. The strategy focuses on improvements in the case-management skills of health staff; improvements in the overall health system; and improvements in family and community health care practices. IMCI has been implemented in Turkey since February 1999, when an Orientation and planning meeting took place co-sponsored by the Ministry of Health, WHO Regional Office for Europe and UNICEF. Participants at the meeting considered IMCI a feasible and appropriate strategy for Turkey and implementation was recommended. IMCI activities were initiated later in 1999 with the adaptation of IMCI to Turkey. In November 2001, adaptation took place of the IMCI food box and feeding recommendations. The first IMCI training course for participants took place in May 2002 and the training course in follow-up after training in February 2003

Ulukol, Betül; Kahiloğulları, Akfer K.; Sethi, Dinesh (2014)Today, violence is a social problem affecting all age groups. It is very difficult to estimate the magnitude of violence including maltreatment of children. Official figures are considered to be merely the tip of the iceberg. This study on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) was conducted in 2 257 university students in order to provide evidence-based data about the magnitude of this problem in Turkey. Another aim of the study was to examine relationship between exposure to ACE and health risk behaviours and selected health consequences. ...
