INTRODUCTION Since the 1980s, health projects in Egypt have sought to improve the quality of care provided by physicians at government health facilities to young children suffering from diarrhoea and acute respiratory infection (ARI). The Egypt National Control of Diarrhoeal Diseases Project (NCDDP), begun in 1982 (1), focused on reducing diarrhoea-related mortality by expanding access to, and use of, oral rehydration therapy. Over the course of the 1980s, thousands of government physicians were trained to diagnose and treat children suffering from diarrhoea (2-4). This training continued into the 1990s. The ARI component of the Egypt Child Survival Project (ECSP), begun in 1989, was not fully implemented until the early 1990s. Between 1990 and 1995, almost 13,000 physicians were trained in standard case management of ARI (5). An early assessment of the Project precipitated changes in the training, which were finalized by 1994. Following these changes, a survey in 1994 showed a significant difference in performance between trained and untrained physicians (6).
