Post a reply: International guidelines on Family MUAC and Simplified Approaches

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

My understanding is that international guidelines (WHO, Unicef) for screening and treating malnutrition now include family MUAC as of March 2020 (per the Unicef Covid protocols). However, the guidelines do not yet recommend other simplified approaches (like the combined treatment of MAM and SAM with one product - per a March 2019 review). Is this understanding accurate? Any insights as to why, and if the combined treatment is up for approval any time soon given the logic and evidence base? Many thanks!
