Can the same MUAC band for children (for example the MSF band) be used for PLW or is there a different MUAC band specifically for this group?

Most MUAC straps can be used for this purpose. The colour bands will not be in the correct place. I usually mark the adult threshold on the strap with an indelible marker.
