For a national guideline on managment of MAM, we are looking for guidance on admission and discharge criteria for children aged 6-59 months. Please confirm that the following are the most updated global recommendations: Admission: If MUAC >= 115 mm and <125 mm AND/OR WFH < -2 z-score & >= - 3 z-score of the WHO Growth Standards Discharge:MUAC >=125 mm for two consecutive visits AND >=-2 z-score WHO Growth Standards for two consecutive visits Also, requesting if anyone has programmatic experiences to share on discharging children using both criteria.
