Hello dear colleagues and professionals in the nutrition sector. I am faced with an exercise that made me very tired. Thank you for helping me. Here is the exercise:
In the district of K2, the estimated population is 385 000 inhabitants, 21% of whom are children under 5 years old.
According to the latest SMART survey, the district has a prevalence rate GAM at 16.1% and CM (chronic malnutrition) at 21.5%.

Determine the Burden of SAM in this health district knowing that the incidence of malnutrition is 2.2. (1 pt)? I am counting on you for the calculation method of the Burden of SAM.
