The feasibility of acute respiratory infection (ARI) control in 5,535 rural preschool children was studied.
The Primary Health Centre (PHC) staff and local practitioners (drug distribution centres) were identified and trained in recognition of moderate/severe ARI, referral, drug administration and in the education of the community.
Functional ARI classification as envisaged in ARI control programme was followed.
There was significant reduction in moderate (42% reduction) and severe (89% reduction) ARI episodes from year 1985 to 1987.
