Indonesia is striving to achieve the Millennium Development Goal 4 target of less than 23 infant deaths per 1000 live births by 2015. In order to reach this target, a community case management (CCM) model, was introduced by the American funded Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP) and the Indonesian Ministry of Health (MoH) in 2011. Little is known about how CCM has been delivered and there is no research that examines the factors that contribute to the successful implementation of CCM in Indonesia. The aim of this research was to gain insight into how CCM was implemented in the Kutai Timur district, East Kalimantan, Indonesia from the perspective of primary health care workers (PHCWs): community nurses, midwives and community health workers; and from the families who received care.
