Post a reply: Treatment of infants <6m with SAM in the community?

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

Hi, I am trying to find out the best way to treat infants below 6 months that are malnourished but whose mothers refuse to stay in a Stabilisation Centre as they have to care for their other children. Hence Supplemental Suckling Technique can't be done as not sterile and can't use diluted F100. I know that the MAMI report looks at community care of these infants but basically hypothesises about a CMAM type triage but wondered what others were actually doing in the field now if they come up against this problem. Thanks.
