Post a reply: MUAC and Age

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

It has been noted that a number of 6 month old children are actually less than 65 cm.... indicates stunting. In some cases mothers are not sure of age, but from observation, development- wise the child is clearly older than 6 months. How has this worked in terms of drawing clear admission protocols for staff in regard to MUAC admissions? MUAC admission covers 6- 59 months, and 65cm is a proxy for 6 months.Should the emphasis for these children be MUAC or WfH? National protocol for management of acute manlnutrition indicates age and not length. Thanks
