Post a reply: What is the cut off point for child bearing age women to decide acute malnutrition based on MUAC?

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

We are planning to do nutrition assessment among child bearing age women using MUAC only. As far I know, MUAC less than 21cm (some where may be 22cm,23cm) is used as cut off point for PLW to classify acute malnutrition in SFP.

Is it same cut off point for child bearing age women or different to classify acute malnutrition based on MUAC?

Thank you for your advice
