Hi, I am trying to work out estimated beneficiary numbers using prevalence and incidence for SAM and MAM. For SAM as I understand it you take the total population of your area e.g. 450,000, then take estimate of under five population 20%. We have the prevalence 3.1% that gives 2790 (450000*20%*3.1 = 2790). But we know that the actual number of children to treat every year is two to three times higher than prevalence. Is it 2 times higher or 3 times higher? Assuming it is 3 then I have been told different methods of calculating it, is it Using example above 2790+ (2790*3) = 11160 OR again using example above 2790*3 = 8370 ? Then how do you do this for MAM? THANKS! Confused of London!
