In the introductory paper of this supplement on policy analyses of integrated community case management of childhood illness (iCCM), the editors argue that ‘the continued neglect of policy analysis in policy design, implementation and evaluation contributes to inappropriate decisions, ineffective programmes and inequitable consequences hindering our ability to reach widely endorsed global health goals’. The manuscripts contained in this issue provide important insights not only into how iCCM programmes can be better designed and implemented but also on how national and global health actors can take local context and policy considerations into greater account to improve the chance of their efforts being successful, regardless of the intervention.
