In the SAM management protocol, RUTF is the recommended product which is used. However due to the breakdown in the supply pipeline, we usually find our hands tied on finding the optional criteria for continuity of SAM management. Do we have ANY optional or expanded criterias which can be used to control relapses of the already enrolled cases or manage the SAM cases in the absence of RUTF? More so can RUSF be used as an option and if so what would be the right administration doses?

Hi Anonymous,
See this:

These options are supported by the inter-agency group noted in the document. This approach needs to be managed carefully so that implementing agencies do not simply default to 'expanded criteria' to cope with poor management of logistics.

I hope this helps.

This is a major challenge which causes relapse of the already managing SAM cases due to absence of RUTF. Please, what can be used in managing the clients?
