WHO Charts For Everyone Caring For Children in Hospital - Chart 2


This is the second chart from ‘Pocket Book of Hospital Care for Children - Guidelines for the Management of Common Illnesses with Limited Resources’ (WHO 2005). This is ‘Chart 2. Triage of all sick children’ [page 4-5].

We plan to publish more charts from this book in future issues of the Journal. We hope you will find them useful.

You can use these charts in different ways. For example, you can print them and display them in relevant wards or clinics (laminated if possible), use them as a ‘memory aid’ in your pocket or use them as handouts or visual aids when training staff. Please let us know if you find the charts useful and how you use them.

You can download the whole book from http://www.ichrc.org/.

Use the "Download article as PDF" button at the top right of the screen to download a printable version.

We thank the WHO for permission to reproduce these charts, and Dr O’Hare who gave us the idea of making the charts more widely available.
