Post a reply: SAM Threshold for Emergency Response

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

Is there international consensus on the SAM threshold to trigger a response? I understand other contextual factors need also to be considered. Still on the same GAM prevalence > 15% calls for immediate emergency intervention. The GAM (%) benchmarks were based on NCHS, with the new WHO standards is there a need to review the benchmarks?
