Aim: To determine the knowledge of certain University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, (UNTH) staff about ARI case management and the impact of ARI case management training on their knowledge. Materials and Methods: This was done during two three-day training courses, which were based on the National Acute Respiratory Infections Programme (NARIP) adaptation of the WHO standard case management module. Pre- and post- (training) tests were done and were marked by the same person. Results: The general mean±S.D pre- and post-test scores were 38.68± 10.22% and 73.44±18.35% respectively (P<0.001). However, there were obvious differences between the groups. Conclusion: This study highlights the deficiency in the knowledge of some of the staff, the need for further staff training and the potential impact of case management training on health workers' knowledge.
