Post a reply: Continum of care for SAM and MAM

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

In settings where both UNICEF and WFP are active, is there

A global guidance/recommendation that says that UNICEF will treat the SAM child until the MAM stage as part of CMAM?

My understanding is that treatment is until full recovery…thus >12.5cm MUAC

When the child becomes MAM, he/she should be discharged from the Outpatient treatment and referred to a WFP-assisted MAM treatment programme?

My understanding is that MAM children are screened and identified for treatment as a preventive measure before they become SAM

Also, in some settings, they are referred to food-based interventions as a nutrition safety net
