Post a reply: Counting of PLW admitted to TSFP

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

A question on counting PLW beneficiaries admitted to a TSFP for acute malnutrition (MUAC <230 mm). 

If a pregnant woman is admitted to the TSFP and delivers while she is still part of the programme, how do we "count" her post-delivery, now that she is now considered lactating?

i) Do we count her as a new admission, under "lactating" (which essentially counts the same woman twice)?

ii) Do we count her as a transfer (which is usually reserved for transfers between TSFPs?

iii) Do we count her as a readmission (reserved for previously discharged cases who now meet the criteria again)?

Or is there another way to count them?
