Post a reply: Organisation of an integrated CMAM programme

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

We are about to integrate the OTP part of a CMAM program in public health centres, and there will be no nutrition-dedicated staff : the only nurse in charge will do medical/nutritional check of all patients and the pharmacist will give the RUTF and systematic treatment. What are the pros and cons of keeping the old approach, i.e. having all beneficiaries coming to the OTP the same day of the week (like: we are open only on monday), compared to having them spread throughout the weekdays (the patient comes every 7th day after the day of diagnosis and first ration)? Wouldn't it be better the second approach to dilute the workload and ease the integration of this service? Thank you in advance.
