Ensure :
1- Proper case management ie both clinically and nutrition-wise, meaning giving the right medical care correctly and being very focused on what nutritional care we give in terms of quantity, mixing and timing and assessments. This can dramatically help to reduce the mortality rate within the hospital. However early case identification and referrals and massive awareness and health education should be key in our interventions. IYCF would do well in cutting down on malnutrition morbidity and mortality.

From Mamadou Saidou Diallo:

First, there must be sufficient human resources
Quality human resources (doctor not only pediatrician but knowledgeable about Management of SAM)
A leader to uphold the SAM management protocol,
Hygiene in the service
An unwavering commitment to HR (rapid emergency management, regular monitoring, diet and drug administration at the appropriate times following the Protocol ....)

In this way you will reduce mortality of malnourished children.....
