Post a reply: Where is MUAC used as the only admission criteria for SAM treatment programmes?

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

The CMAM Forum is currently mapping out all programmes where MUAC is used as the only admission criteria for SAM treatment, along with bilateral pitting oedema (as opposed to using both MUAC and WHZ or only WHZ admission criteria).

If you know of programmes using this admission criteria, we would love to hear from you!

We would really like to know where it is being used, the type of context (emergency/ non emergency), who conducts the measurements (mothers/community health workers/ health facility workers), how children continue to be monitored once in the programme and what discharge criteria are used.

Thank you!
